    "which" and "in which"

    I'm an English learner.
    I see lots of sentences with phrase "in which" in the textbook.
    What is the differences between the use of "which" and "in which"?

    Re: "which" and "in which"

    Hello elieli123,

    "in which" refers to the context.
    Example: There is an grammar book in which you can find more information.
    in which = in the book

    "which" refers to the object
    Example: There is a new drug on the market which will destroy cancer.
    which = a new drug

    I hope that this is helpful for you
