"dans laquelle" vs. "ou"

Would it also be correct to say "L'époque dans laquelle il vivait..."?

Bonjour Carol, Here you could use 'laquelle' but not with "dans", simply because with "époque" you use the preposition 'à' : "Je suis né à cette époque." (I was born in that time.) Therefore, you could say: "L'époque à laquelle il vivait ...". I hope that's helpful!
