    which / in which

    Hello could you please tell me which one is grammatically correct?

    A - If there is to be toleration in the world, one of the things taught in schools must be the habit of weighing evidence, and the practice of not giving full assent to propositions which there is no reason to believe true.
    B - If there is to be toleration in the world, one of the things taught in schools must be the habit of weighing evidence, and the practice of not giving full assent to propositions in which there is no reason to believe true.

    I think A is correct and B is incorrect, but one of my friends said that both of them are correct. Is B also grammatically correct?

    Re: Which sentence is grammatically correct?

    Welcome to the forum, 1000maru.

    We believe something (to be) true. We don't believe in something (to be ) true. A is correct.

    1000maru, please note that a better title would have been which/in which.
