    The city look different at/in different time of the day.

    1) The city look different at/in different time of the day.

    2) The city look different during daytime than nighttime.

    Can I phrase the sentences in such a way?

    The main problem with your sentence is that the verb does not agree with the noun. Fix that first and then we'll comment on the rest of the sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Sorry for the late reply. I have made some corrections and I hope I get it right this time.:) 1) The city looks different at different time of the day.2) The city looks different at daytime and nighttime.
