Q: Please show me example sentences with at which, in which, of which and etc... the sentences WITH which .
A: Good explanation:

The trick to knowing how to use of which, at which, in which, to which, from which is to analyse the prepositional phrases, phrasal verbs, verbs and prepositions:

He /spoke of/ war and peace and many other topics that day. The topic /of which he spoke/ were complex. The verb here that means to speak about is /to speak of/: to mention

The party /at which/ he spoke/ was noisy. Phrase: A party is held /at a place/. It is implied.

The situation /in which/ we found ourselves was dire. Phrase: /to find oneself in/ a situation.

The bonds /from which/ we broke free were tight. phrase: to /break free from/ bonds.

The town /to which/we were driving was 50 ks away. phrase: to /drive to/ a place.

Summary (and not a complete answer but a general one): The preposition depends on the verb that takes a preposition, a phrasal verb that includes a preposition, or it depends on the prepositional phrase used. Also, there are many other prepositions that can be paired with which: under, during, about, over, etc.

Synonyms of "Etc" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between etc and and so on ?
A: They are both used in spoken English interchangeably. However, "and so on" is rarely used in writing, and "etc" is used quite frequently in writing. You will often hear people say "and so forth" as well, but rarely written.

Spoken sounds okay:
"I love Asian food - Thai, Chinese, etc"
"I love Asian food - Thai, Chinese, and so on."
"I love Asian food - Thai, Chinese, and so forth"

Sounds okay written:
"I love Asian food - Thai, Chinese, etc"
