    Several hundred, I'd imagine. At least. You don't want them all do you?

    I have few questions

    a. instead of what can i use which factors...?
    b. rather than might can i use would?

    I want to maintain the same meaning of the sentence, I have tried a few versions, kindly tell me if they are correct

    What aspects would you consider for evaluating patients for conversion to Adagraf(grug name)?

    What factors according to you will determine a patients conversion to Adagraf(grug name)?

    Based on which factors might you determine for patients conversion to Adagraf(grug name)?

    Huh? Your sentence is meaningless. Do you mean, "Instead of 'what' can I use 'which factors'"?
    You can use "which factors" instead of "what factors" and, in your original sentence, you can use "what" instead of "which factors".

    b. rather than might can i use would?
    Again, this is garbled nonsense.
    You can use "would" instead of "might". But it might have a different meaning; in fact, it usually would.

    I want to maintain the same meaning of the sentence, I have tried a few versions, kindly tell me if they are correct

    What aspects would you consider for evaluating patients for conversion to Adagraf(drug name)? drug. Possible

    What factors according to you will determine a patient's conversion to Adagraf(grug name)? Possible.

    Based on which factors might you determine for patients conversion to Adagraf(grug name)? No.
    The words you use depend entirely upon what your meaning is. What is the meaning you want from your sentence? As I said, there are hundreds of ways you can construct a sentence like this. The best way is the one which communicates your intended meaning. You've been given a few. Just add "to Adagraf" to them.

    What is your interest in this matter? If you are a sales representative for Adagraf talking to doctors, the best way might be "What considerations would convince you to change your patients to our excellent drug, Adagraf?"
    If you are an examiner, examining medical students, you might ask, "What factors in a patient's condition might make you consider that there is nothing left but to consider this highly dangerous new drug, Adagraf?"
    There's no perfect version without a context.

    Everyone: Please make your sentences meaningful by quoting quotes and quoted words!
