A question about an English sentence A sentence from a report (name)XX's anti-corruption initiatives also extends to many projects and important strategic deals between Beijing and the previous administration under President (name)YY(2001-2010),which were criticized for lack of transparency and tainted by allegations of corruption. So in this sentence,what does 「which」refer to?? Does it refer to「 President YY 」OR「 XX's anti-corruption initiatives」??? How can I judge the usage of 「which」 in this sentence TKS~

I would say it refers to 'Beijing and the previous administration under President YY, which would account for the plural verb form 'were' - in other words, two things are being referred to here.
