    Both are correct, second one is more common.

    What's the point of using 'on' then? So 'on' is not omitted in #2?
    1. She is working on that day.
    2. She is working (on) that day.

    Re: In / On

    What do these mean?
    1. I live on the west side. (If I'm supposed to use this one, why?)
    2. I live in the east side.

    3. I live in Canada.
    4. I live on Canada. ('on' is incorrect here? But #1 is correct? Is it because it means that your house is the size of Canada?)

    I think it all depends on how your computer is built. I would say "into the motherboard" if your card goes directly into it. I would choose "onto" the motherboard" if the slot for the card is soldered onto the motherboard - the slot gadget would be then just an added feature.

    Re: In / On

    What do these mean? Does it matter if I use 'in' or 'on'?
    1. You were on a car, would you get their faster? (I don't get it. If I'm on a car, I am probably in the car too?)
    2. You were in a car, would you get their faster? (If I'm in a car, I'm probably on the car too?
    How do you know which one to use?

    3. I don't think I can come home in time.
    4. I don't think I can come home on time.
