Reply to "Which modifying a clause"

I guess I'm not understanding how sentential clauses (or relative clauses in general) work. 😳  I'll try studying this more.

In sentential relative clauses, "which" refers to the entire propositional content of the clause preceding it. When used after a comma, "which" also has the potential of referring to noun phrases, verb phrases, and adjective phrases.
