    The correct answer is "in which." This is used to prevent ending the sentence with a preposition (i.e., "... stamped envelope to mail your application for membership to our club in"). The application must be placed inside the envelope, so that is why "in" is the correct preposition; "with" would mean that they are mailed alongside each other, which isn't true.

     

    "In which". You put your application in the enclosed envelope and mail it. It's not problematic at all.
