    Default It happened on the day that/when I left home.

    1. It happened on the day that I left home.

    2. It happened on the day when I left home.

    3. It happened on the day on which I left home.

    4. It happened on the day which I left home. '



    Are they all grammatically correct? Sentence 1 is from my grammar books and the others are by me.


    Thank you so much in advance.

    1. is OK. You could also say 'It happened on the day I left home' and 'It happened the day I left home'.

    2 and 3 are possible.

    4 is incorrect.
