There's a couple of points to make here.Hello,

Suppose this dialogue happens, B tries to understand the resource of the data. is b's question correct ? or how do you ask instead?

A:it's either p1 or p2

B:according to which one is that true?

Best Regards

1) I don't think the word "resource" is correct. I think you should say "source"

2) If we are asking which of two options? Then we need to say "Which of the two options is true, p1 or p2?

or if you want to use the word "according" then we can say "According to you, which of the two options is true p1 or p2?"

According to you, the answer is X. (= you said X)

According to this book, the answer is Y. (= this book says Y)

But I don't think you can ask about who said it, or about which book says it, using 'according to':

According to who is the answer X?

According to which book is the answer Y?

(The book is the source of

Over your example,I want to detail it

According to you, the answer is X. (= you said X)

According to this book, the answer is Y. (= this book says Y)

But I don't think you can ask about who said it, or about which book says it, using 'according to':

According to who is the answer X?

According to which book is the answer Y?

(The book is the source ofthisinformation, on this occasion. It's aresourceif it contains lots of information that you could use from time to time.)

"According to who is the answer X?"

Here you have people with answers

According to Billy answer is X

According to Jane answer is Y

According to John answer is Z

According to Mary answer is X

And you want to ask a question so that you can get people to find whose answer is X.And you say

"According to who is the answer X? according to Billy or Mary or John"

is it still sounding strange

Thanks
