When used in a question

You wrote 'When used in a question, "où" always means "where?" and "quand" always means "when?"' but didn't give an example. Does that mean "Le jour où j'ai eu vingt ans" become "Le jour quand ai-je eu vingt ans?" Thanks.

Bonjour Johnny ! As you suggested, I added examples to clarify this case. I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !

Ah, so you meant where and when as the subject of the question. I thought you meant in the context of the lesson. So "Was that the day you turned twenty?" is still "Est-ce que c'était le jour où j'ai eu vingt ans?"

Yes, "Was that the day you turned twenty?" is still "Est-ce que c'était le jour où tu as eu vingt ans?"

Why we haven't use dans laquelle why only  Où is correct
