    which is true

    Hello, there
    Could you tell me which I should choose?
    My sister was doing her homework _________ my brother was playing online games.
    (a) while (b) when
    I think the answer should be (a), but someone told me (b) is also correct.
    Please tell me if the conjunction when can be used in the sentence. Thank for your help.

    Re: which is true

    Yes, both "while" and "when" are good subordinating conjunctions in that sentence.
