Good day, everyone.

The use of "whose" is a bit informal to me, just like:
There are problems whose solutions have baffled many philosophers in every age.

Therefore, I have tried to change it to "which of" as follows:
There are problems solutions of which have baffled many philosophers in every age.

And, then I am a bit doubtful about it because of the immediate adjacent position of the "solutions" to the "problems".

I also cannot put a comma between them because the relative clause is defining.

So, how should I restructure the sentence?

Thank you.
