請幫忙分析句子的結構

在讀一篇探討人們休閒興趣變化的文章中,發現下面的句子有點難理解為何可以寫成這樣;請幫我分析這句話(從 some...到最後的子句)的結構,謝謝!

Nowadays, people are exposed to a wide variety of leisure activites, some of which are popular to the extent that pursuing them has become a fashion of the day.

(1) which 應該是指某些休閒活動吧!?

(2) of 為什麼要放在 which 的前面?

(3) the extent 前面為什麼要加介系詞 to 呢?

(4) of the day 有特別的用意嗎?還是純粹是用來表示 "時下的流行風氣"?

Update:

我已經知道 (4) of the day 的用意,請不用回答這一小題.

    Nowadays, people are exposed to a wide variety of leisure activities, some of which are popular to the extent that pursuing them has become a fashion of the day.

    (1) which 在此是指前面提到的眾多休閒活動 a wide variety是指廣泛 各式各樣的

    (2) of 放在 which 的前面 是因為some of the leisure activities, 某些休閒活動 "有某一些"的英文用法是some of... 而which在此代表 leisure activities

    (3) the extent 前面要加介系詞 to, 因為to a certain extent的片語就是到某種程度 一定要有介系詞to

    希望以上回答對您有幫助

    是的。指的就是a wide variety of leisure activities

    (你題目中的activities應該是少打了一個i吧!)

    (2) of 為什麼要放在 which 的前面?

    句中some of which=some of leisure activities

    some of ------就是有些、一些(請參考http://dic.lifestyle.msn.com.tw/dict/word?k=some)

    這個of的用法和你的(4)a fashion of the day是一樣的道理。

    (3) the extent 前面為什麼要加介系詞 to 呢?

    To the extent 是在某個範圍 某些程度上的用法(請參考http://dic.lifestyle.msn.com.tw/dict/word?k=extent...

    (1) Yes,right.

    (2)這裡是所有格關係.休閒活動中的一部分 some of which.

    再例如,我的一個朋友 a friend of mine.

    (3)在某某範圍內,一般是to a certain extent,固定搭配

    (4)of the day

    ph. (片語 phrase)

    當代的;當時的

    These are questions of the day.

    這些是時事問題。
