    Re: It is on the contract?

    Are you simply asking about the difference based on "in" or "on", or are you asking if you can reverse the first two words of the question (as you have done)?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Are both okay and grammatical? And is there a difference in usage?

    I'd like to know the meaning of in and on in the sentence. And I've correct the mistake.

    Thanks for correcting the mistake.

    I would use "in the contract". "On" is not wrong, though, in my opinion.

    Re: It is on the contract?

    I would only use "in".

    With "name", I would use "in". If you use "signature", I would use "on".

    Why's there a difference in usage here? I don't get it.
