    In is correct. Look at the article.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: find the mistake

    I would write it as "Does corn ripen in the sun" as you did a few posts above.
