|"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.
