Hello dear Teachers and Moderators

Please tell me what's the usage of 'in which', I tried to look up in dictionaries but had no result. Is there any difference between the sentences of respective groups and are they correct?

A1. Look at the picture, this is the country in which people speak Dutch.

A2. Look at the picture, this is the country that people speak Dutch.

B2. Look at the picture, this is the country in which I used to live.

B2. Look at the picture, this is the country that I used to live in.

Thanks in advance, hope you have idea what I'm tring to ask...

Hello

All are correct.



  • A1. Look at the picture, this is the country in which people speak Dutch.



  • A2. Look at the picture, this is the country that people speak Dutch (in).



  • A3. Look at the picture, this is the country where people speak Dutch.



  • B1. Look at the picture, this is the country in which I used to live.



  • B2. Look at the picture, this is the country that I used to live (in).



  • B3. Look at the picture, this is the country where I used to live.


  • We commonly leave out 'in' when the relative is 'that'. It is particularly true after 'live'.
