    Default whole Europe ?

    Should I say :

    1. in the whole Europe
    2. in whole Europe
    3. in whole of Europe
    4. in the whole of Europe

    which ones are ok and which ones are not ? maybe they simply mean something else ?

    4 is correct- the others have something missing. In colloquial speech, you may come across a word omitted, but it would be considered an error by most.
