Verbally

by Sher1 » Fri Aug 21, 2009 10:17 pm
Our understanding was that she would continue to cover the costs of school enrollment and room and board for the children, which she verbally agreed to pay with the rest of the family.

A which she verbally agreed to pay with the rest of the family.
B which she agreed verbally with the rest of the family to pay.
B of which she agreed verbally with the rest of the family to pay.
C both of which she verbally agreed to pay with the rest of the family.
D both of which she agreed to pay with the rest of the family verbally.

Another vote for D

'which' always refers to the noun immediately before comma. Hence, we can straight rule out A and B because in these options 'which' is referring to 'children', WHICH is the noun immediately before comma.

IMO C

D is incorrect because 'verbally' modifies the verb 'to pay' which doesnt make sense

C both of which she verbally agreed to pay with the rest of the family.
D both of which she agreed to pay with the rest of the family verbally.
C...

relative pronouns have to clearly modify their antecedents. "both of which" clearly modifies "school enrollment and room and board." "verbally" modifies "agreed"

you got this man!

OA is B, but I didn't buy it. I see someone chose B as an OA. Please provide further details why D was not right.
