    attributive clause

    Hi,any help is appreciated here!
    Typical for China is crosstalk,where a pair of comedians entertains the audience with word play.
    Can we use "in which"to replace "where" in this sentence? By the way, I don't think "in which" fits in well here. Am I right?

    Re: attributive clause

    Please reduce your font size.
    Thanks.

    What about "whereby"?
    Typical for China is crosstalk, whereby a pair of comedians entertains the audience with word play.

    However, I believe "where" is also correct.

    Important: I am neither a teacher nor a native speaker.

    P.S: I'm not sure about "in which"...

    Cheers!

    How about:
    Crosstalk, where a pair of comedians entertains the audience with word play, is typical/a typical type of comedy in China.

    There is nothing wrong with the sentence order.The original sentence is an inversion.Thank you any way.
