請大家幫我解釋這句英文文法~

從常春藤雜誌(2009/10/2)關於鑑識科學的文章裡看到的一個句子

The most famous story is that of the sickle murder,in which an investigator solved a murder case by examining the suspests' sharp farming tools.

1. 逗號前的句子, "of"怎麼會這樣用呢??

2. 這裡的in which 應該不等於where吧?

那 in 是 solved 還是 examining 的介係詞放到which前面嗎??

怎麼看都不像....@@

請大家幫忙囉

感謝!

    The most famous story is that of the sickle murder,in which an investigator solved a murder case by examining the suspests' sharp farming tools.

    這句文法上沒問題,完全正確。

    1. 逗號前的句子, "of"怎麼會這樣用呢??

    首先分析that 在這邊是什麼作用,在這邊that 是代名詞,代表 (the/a) story,您可以用 the story替換進去就看的懂誕。

    The most famous story is that of the sickle murder = The most famous story is the story of the sickle murder

    the story of XXX 這個您應該可以看懂 = XXX的故事。

    最有名的故事就是那件鐮刀殺人案件。

    2. 這裡的in which 應該不等於where吧?

    那 in 是 solved 還是 examining 的介係詞放到which前面嗎??

    怎麼看都不像....@@

    看不懂的話可以還原,或是不還原的話可以直接把in which理解成「在which中」。which翻成該先行詞就行了。

    還原看看

    ~ ,in which an investigator solved a murder case by examining the suspests' sharp farming tools.

    =

    ~ , which an investigator solved a murder case by examining the suspests' sharp farming tools in.

    可以看出 an investigator solved a murder case by examining the suspests' sharp farming tools in 先行詞.

    這樣有了解嗎?

    要是不把介詞in給調到最後的話也很好理解,直接把which換成先行詞再幫二句加上連接詞and

    The most famous story is that of the sickle murder,in which an investigator solved a murder case by examining the suspests' sharp farming tools.

    =

    The most famous story is that of the sickle murder, and in the sickle murder an investigator solved a murder case by examining the suspests' sharp farming tools.

    =

    The most famous story is that of the sickle murder, and an investigator solved a murder case by examining the suspests' sharp farming tools in the sickle murder.
