    Hi, I cannot understand the difference between "which" and "whereby". I also cannot use "whereby" in my own sentences, so I use "which" all the time. Any help will be appreciated.
    Please correct my mistakes if you encounter any.

    Re: whereby

    You will never need to use 'whereby'. Most natives don't. It means something like "by which; in which".
    "Let's make an arrangement whereby (in/by which) you drive on Mondays and Wednesdays, and I drive on Tuesdays and Thursdays." You can't use 'which' here.
