"Child labor was a social problem in late eighteen-century England, where employment in factories became virtual slavery for children." (Azar Grammar book)
1. Is this sentence correct?
2. Should I add the THE before "late"? - in THE late eighteen-century England
3. Can I change the word "where" to "when" because it refers to *late eight-century* England, which is a TIME?
4. Between "where" and "when", which do you prefer?
1. Yes, except that eighteenth is misspelled. You've spelled labor as we do in AmE; in BrE, it's labour.
2. No. That would be incorrect.
4. Only where is correct.
