    Welcome to the forum, yajie zhao.

    Definition 3, here.

    We like to help when we can, but if you just want to know the meaning of a word, it is often quicker to consult a dictionary; there are many here. If you can't find your answer in a dictionary, then we can help.

    I want to know why do they use "where" in this sentence? Is it a relative adverb or a conjunction? I think the"Where" in this sentence dosen't mean a place, right?
