By which vehicle is it more safety to travel , a plane or a train ?

Which vehicle is more safety to travel , a plane or a train ?

Does “it” change the meaning in the sentence below? Or Is there a little difference ? I really couldn’t understand .

    Both your examples are syntactically invalid. We'd usually use safer rather than more safe anyway, but 1: By which vehicle is it more safe to travel...? and 2: Which vehicle is more safe to travel in? are valid. You could optionally include it in #2, and/or replace in with on or by. The preposition can be moved to the start of the utterance; in which case it must be included; By which vehicle is it safer to travel...? Feb 16, 2020 at 16:49

Neither of your sentences are correct.

"safety" is a noun. What you need in both these sentences is the adjective "safe".

It is safe to travel.

It is more safe to travel.

Making that change makes the first sentence correct, except that I would put a colon instead of a comma. Colons are usually used to introduce a list.

By which vehicle is it more safe to travel: a plane or a train?

The second sentence also needs a preposition. You do not "travel a plane" you "travel in a plane". (the preposition can vary between "in" or "on" depending on the transport). So your second sentence should be:

Which vehicle is more safe to travel in: a plane or a train?
