He is wearing the kind of clothes I wear.

In the sentence above, what is the antecedent of the relative clause?

1. clothes
2. kind
3. the kind
4. the kind of clothes

Which one among the four?

  • English -

    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."

  • English -

    Then is it 'the kind of clothes'?

    Does "I wear' modify 'the kind of clothes' or 'clothes'?

  • English -

    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.
