    By the time you realize how futile this question is, you will already be able to use these prepositions correctly.

    It depends on the context. For instance:

    I'll see you in the morning.
    I'll see you at 9 AM tomorrow morning.

    Generally, "at" designates a precise point in space or time.

    Generally, "in" designates a contained space.

    "In" also means "after" a precise duration.
