    Exclamation which

    Hello there

    Are there any grammatical mistakes?

    Could you explain the circumstances in which the accident occurred?
    Could you explain the circumstances which the accident occurred in?

    The committee of which I am a member is the Event Planning Committee.
    The committee which I am a member of is the Event Planning Committee.


    Please help me!

    Neither of these sound particularly natural to me.

    Could you explain the circumstances surrounding the accident?

    Both sound good to me, Gchman, with the first being more formal.

    Could you explain the circumstances in which the accident occurred? << This is correct.

    Could you explain the circumstances which the accident occurred in? << This is correct, but the first one is better.

    The committee of which I am a member is the Event Planning Committee. << I think it's better to say it this way: I'm a member of the Event Planning Committee. Regardless of grammar, this is simply a better way to say it.


    The committee which I am a member of is the Event Planning Committee. << The same thing goes here: I'm a member of the Event Planning Committee. Or you could say, "I'm on the Event Planning Committee".
