Relative clauses
 
HELLO EVERYONE , I would be grateful if anyone could tell me about the preposition existence in the two relative clauses of when where I can‘t forget the day ......I met you on. The option here is which . Can it be when ? Is it optional or compulsory to omit the preposition .. THANK YOU ...

Hi, Khawla,
First, it is optional. I canīt remember the day I met you on.
 
Because of "on", you canīt use "when", because you canīt change the order to say "I canīt remember the day on when I met you", while you can say "I canīt remember the day on which I met you".. So, the other options are
 
I canīt remember the day when I met you.
I canīt remember the day which I met you on.
