Request expert explanation on the following sentence:

My sister, Lucy, still hasn't decided the country where she wants to travel after she graduates from university

1. ....
2. which country she wants to visit still doesn't know it
3. is undecided about the country where she wants to travel
4. hasn't decided which country where she wants to travel
5. still hasn't decided what country she wants to visit

In original sentence, "still" is playing what role? is it an adverb? If yes, isn't this supposed to be between auxiliary and main verb? Also, choice 5 uses "what" is that grammatically correct? What are the errors in main sentence? (Apart from visit, pronoun, travel and , before prep modifier "after...." I could not figure out any)

5. still hasn't decided what country she wants to visit

My sister, Lucy, still hasn't decided what country she wants to visit.

"Still" is just saying that it's been a state that has existed longer than expected, even up to the present.

In (3) and (4), the use of "where" is extraneous.
(3)...is undecided about the country [where] she wants to travel
(4)hasn't decided which country [where] she wants to travel

Since (3) and (4) already use the words "about" and "which", we do not need to add "where".

You'll notice that for (5), there is no extraneous word added.
"still hasn't decided what country she wants to visit"

"what country she wants to visit" - is all 1 phrase
"what country where she wants to visit" - this would be incorrect
