    Prepositions of location at/in/on

    The prepositions at, in, and on can be used to reference time, location, or direction.

    These are the simple rules to use these prepositions in reference to location.

    We use 'at' when the location is a place. For example:
    Your sister is at the front door.
    We are having a picnic at the park.
    He will be waiting for you at the school.

    We use 'in' when the location is a container. For example:
    The book is in the desk drawer.
    She put the flowers in the vase.
    He is in the kitchen

    We use 'on' when the location is the surface of something. For example:
    The pencil is on the top of the desk.
    The glass fell on the floor
    My cat is sleeping on the bed.
