+1 StoneyB and John Lawler: your explanation is really helpful. Now I understand much better. I think the best way of learning pied-piped relative pronoun is understand the whole sentence without caring about any grammar. But I haven't reached that level yet, I can only learn from the grammar. Thank you guys.

@StoneyB, thank you so much for your explanation. It's still hard for a non-English speaker to find a fast way to distinguish the role of which.

comment Difference between “combination of ” and “combination between”
Thank you Tony. Do you mean that only combination of is right. So the expressions of combination between and combination among are incorrect.
