|"nec sectare quae fugit" must be a sentence where the correlate of the relative clause is left out, e.g. illam or eam, if I'm not mistaken?|
One could say that the correlate is included in the relative pronoun.
Because surely, quae can't be neuter, plural, or the verb fugit would have changed to fugiunt.
I know this is a feature (i.e. leaving out/ absorbing the correlate) quite common to latin - but how have you learned to explain it?
I for one, find it a bit confusing, and have had a hard time explaining it to others.
