    Dear all,

    a) in what
    b) from whom
    c) where
    d) that
    e) how

    First, tell us which options you would choose.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    for 26, unfortunately, I have no idea.

    for 27, I think it is "what" but I can not make an explanation.

    I just dont want the correct options. I need explanations as well.

    The answer key says 26A 27D. But I really don't understand it and I cannot explain it to my kids. I feel like I am getting worse in English. :(
