Could anyone give me some examples or rules for using ", of which"? I mean only ", of which", neither "which" nor ", xxx of which". Any idea is appreciated.

Is it possible, that "of" is not an essential part of the verb in the relative clause?



"Of which" is part of a relative clause.

"Which" is the relative pronoun and "of" is a preposition placed at the beginning of the relative clause, instead of at the end.

A few examples of this construction are:

She discovered so many spiders, of which she was most afraid.

He answered all the listening and reading exercises, of which the test mostly consisted.

The team won a silver medal, of which they were very proud.

Note also that you can place "of" differently:

She discovered so many spiders, which she was most afraid of.

He answered all the listening & reading exercises, which the test mostly consisted of.

The team won a silver medal, which they were very proud of.
