    And finally, verification, in which you proved Cindy's idea worked.

    The theory says there are essentially four stages to solving complicated problems, the first being preparation. In other words, brainstorming like you did. The next step, incubatrion, was the twenty-minute break you took...Then illumination, which would be Cindy's sudden realization. And finally, verification, in which you proved Cindy's idea worked.

    I saw somewhere that 'in which' is kind of synonym of 'where,' but 'where' doesn't seem to quite fit here. How do I use 'in which' properly in a sentence?

    Thank you in advance.

    The example in your quote is a good one.

    In which

    Post another sentence with "in which" in it. Then I can comment on it.

    Ye.. 'where' seems to fit there. Thanks anyway! I will post another one whenever I come up with an odd one.
