    Some english questions

    1.May I know the difference between"fill in" and "fill out" ?

    "Please fill in/ fill out your personal information." is it correct?
    "Please fill in/ fill out the blanks?" Is it correct?
    "Please fill in/ fill out the form?" Is it correct?
    Are they the same?


    2.May I know how to use "of which" and "in which" ?
    I am quite confused.


    3. carry much weight with + sb.
    have much influence on + sb.
    Can I use sth.?
    For example,
    "money has much influence on the result." Is it correct?
    "monery carries much weight with the result." Is it correct?



    4. Should we add the word "the" before adj. "same"?
    for example,
    "Two toys are (the) same." Does we need to add the words "the" ?

    "This pen is (the) same as that one." Does we need to add the words "the"?



    My English is quite poor and it is not my first language.
    Thanks for your help.

    2.May I know how to use "of which" and "in which" ?

    Which is a relative pronoun which refers to inanimate things and to animals. The said expressions are used to form questions; as:
    In which country is the Taj-mahal located?
    Is that the film in which the hero kills his mother?
    Of Which country is Havana the Capital?


    3. carry much weight with + sb. Sb can be a noun or pronoun
    have much influence on + sb.
    Can I use sth.? sth can be a common noun.
    For example,
    "money has much influence on the result." Is it correct? Yes
    "monery carries much weight with the result." Is it correct? Yes



    4. Should we add the word "the" before adj. "same"? Yes, use when ever and where ever necessary.
    for example,
    "Two toys are (the) same." Do (es) we need to add the words "the" ? Yes

    "This pen is (the) same as that one." Does we need to add the words "the"? the same as is a common phrase.
