    Re: which of these sentences is correct?

    Only (1) is formally acceptable, and is often replaced by the less formal 'the folder I put all my homework in got soaked'.

    (2) is incorrect.

    (3) is grammatically correct but 130 years out of date. You will see 'wherein' almost exclusively in legal documents now.
