304. A Relative Pronoun indicates a relation between its own clause and some substantive. This substantive is called the Antecedent of the relative.

Thus, in the sentence—

  1. eum nihil dēlectābat quod fās esset (Mil. 43) , nothing pleased him which was right,

the relative quod connects its antecedent nihil with the predicate fās esset , indicating a relation between the two.
