where or what?
Please look at the following sentence:
He wrote the famous poem when he made a tour to ________ was once a battlefield. (where/what)
Where or what? which one is correct? Plz give me explanation.
The following is anothere question:
The new secretary is responsible and hard-working, ________ her predecessor was not.
Which word will you fill in the blank if you do not use conjunctions such as but, while, although?
Re: where or what?
In that sentence, I would use "where". That is because of the word "to". Had the sentence been "tour of", I would have selected "what". I could make a case for "what" in your sentence, but I think "where" fits the context better.
