關係代名詞的非限定用法

當使用關係代名詞的非限定時

通常解釋是說「只有一個」

My father, who is now 37 years old, likes jogging.

=>我只有一個爸爸

但如果先行詞是複數的呢?

The scientists ______ had found the cure for AIDS, pulished their results to the whole world.

正確答案為 ,who

這是非限定的用法,但是先行詞為非單數,而且在選擇題中也有who的選項,為什麼正確答案就是,who呢?

Update:

總不會只是因為ADIS後面有一個逗號的關係吧… = ="

但是他還是非限定的用法,只是先行詞為非單數,這樣怪怪的。

    文法的學習, 不能只背條文公式, 要真正了解涵義.

    非限定的用法的意義, 不是"只有一個", 而是"不會有別的". 先行詞並不限定是單數, 也不限可數名詞.

    My father, who is now 37 years old, likes jogging.

    =>我不會有別的爸爸.

    The scientists, who had found the cure for AIDS, pulished their results to the whole world.

    就是這批人, 不會是別的科學家.

    ADIS後面的逗號的確是和[who]之前的配對的.

    An unrestricted adjective clause adds extra information about the noun it modifies. This information is not necessary to identify the noun.
