Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com 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.

Spoken sounds okay:

"I love Asian food - Thai, Chinese, etc"
