Dose "in which" mean "where"? however, "where" cannot modify "phenomenon", but why "in which" could?

Hello friend.
The sentence needs to refer to "phenomenon".
"Where" should refer to a place
"when" should refer to a time (even though we informally use it to refer to specific events)
"phenomenon having" is awkward

Then, we only have "phenomenon IN WHICH". In which is more general. It can refer to a person, style, situation... and a phenomenon.

I did not choose C because "have a language development" is awkward.

does that make sense to you?
