Student or Learner
Hello dear teachers.
A teacher asked his students to fill the gaps in the following sentences.
1- The result was neither good ............nor bad.
2- I come from a country .............. history goes back thousands of years.
As for the first one, I think there is nothing to be filled.It is OK as it is now, isn't it?
For the second one I am a little bit confuesed what to use. where or whose?
please help me with them
Thanks in advance.

I would agree with your thoughts on #1.
For #2, either would be possible: "where" denotes the location, and "whose" the provenance.
(The teacher has a curious sense of humour; "history" tends to go back "thousands of years"...)
