    in what = where in this sentence?

    1. One of the most difficult things to make up our minds about it in what freedom consists.

    >> May I change in what into where?

    No.
    I assume your it was intended to be is.

    Your expression would then be acceptable but very formal. Less formal would be:

    One of the most difficult things to make up our minds about is what freedom consists in.


    Even that sounds a little formal to me; I would use of rather than in
