of which 問題

為何這句中關代處要用of which???

This application claims the benefit of Taiwan application Serial No. 101145944, filed December 6, 2012, the disclosure of which is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety.

    因為關係子句的主詞the disclosure和先行詞application的關係是隸屬關係(A of B),所以用介系詞of來表示,關係代名詞which代表application。

    類似的句子,關係子句的主詞或受詞都只是先行詞的一部分,兩者有隸屬關係:

    He showed me his new car, the wheels of which were painted bright red.

    =He showed me his new car, whose wheels were painted bright red.

    We use a red book, the title of which I cannot remember.
