    You need to put those phrases in a sentence so we know what you mean.
    We don't say "By which" by itself, and nor do we say, "By what".
    Some context is needed.

    Yes.

    That is not exactly a helpful answer, because one can create situations in which almost any two words in English can appear next to each other.

    As Raymott suggested, try putting the words in a sentence in which you think they might be possible, and we'll tell you if you are right.
