He is wearing the kind of clothes I wear.
In the sentence above, what is the antecedent of the relative clause?
3. the kind
4. the kind of clothes
Which one among the four?
The relative clause is "(that) I wear." What do you wear?
Hint: It cannot be "clothes" because that word is serving as an object of the preposition "of."
Then is it 'the kind of clothes'?
Does "I wear' modify 'the kind of clothes' or 'clothes'?
The antecedent of the relative clause is "kind."
"I" and "wear" are the subject and verb in the relative clause, and those words don't modify anything.
