I have a few questions about the use of the pronoun which.

In the sentence:

A statistical model is a family of probability distributions of a random variable which is smoothly parametrized by a finite number of real parameters.

  1. Is the pronoun which referring to the noun "statistical model" or the noun "variable"?

  2. How could I rewrite the sentence above to make the pronoun which refer to the noun "statistical model"?

Disclaimer- I am a non native speaker. So just for the reference sake.

1 --> Neither of them. which is referring to "a family of probability distributions of a random variable"

2 --> You don't need to do. Because "A statistical model" is the subject so that it should be explained by the clause (in this case "a family of probability distributions of a random variable which is smoothly parametrized by a finite number of real parameters.").

Just FYI.
