    Explanation
    The question is asking in which case the question "Wo?" (meaning "Where?") must be written. The correct answer is Dative and Accusative. In German grammar, the Dative case is used to indicate the indirect object of a sentence, including the answer to the question "Where?". The Accusative case is used to indicate the direct object of a sentence, which can also be the answer to the question "Where?". Therefore, both the Dative and Accusative cases are acceptable answers in this context.
