Idioglossia is a phenomenon, incompletely understood at best, where two persons develop a unique and private language with highly original vocabulary and syntax.
(A) where two persons develop a unique and private language with
(B) when two persons develop a unique and private language having
(C) in which two persons have unique and private language development with
(D) having two persons who develop a unique and private language that has
(E) in which two persons develop a unique and private language with

i chose B

OA is E

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

thks a lot:)

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.

therefore, E is my answer.

does that make sense to you?
:)
