: A book says only the first sentence is acceptable. I don't know why the second sentence is not acceptable.

: The movie The Wizard of Oz, _________ is taken from the book of the same name, has been a children's favorite for years.

: a) the title of which
: b) which title

: Thanks for your help.

: Tom
