Hi S54exrtcyughvuh,

Here are some examples:

I liked the dress which has blue laces.

I like movies which portray real life dramas.

I need a bottle in which I can pour the remaining orange juice.

These are the scenes in which the actress is supposed to cry.

I guess 'in which' supports the object where the action has to take place.

"Which" is pronoun or determiner, acting as subject or object in its clause. "Which" also a question word to show what kind of information is wanted. In addtion to, " which" can be used to modify nouns and some pronouns--to identify things. Furthermore, " which " can also be conjunction.

which movie did you like. (determiner)

which is mine ( pronoun )

He bought a new suit. It is made in Italy. He bought a new suit which is made in Italy ( pronoun subject and conjunction)

This is the room in which she kissed him. In that sentence, "in" is a preposition comes before which. " which she kissed him " is the object of the prepostion.
