    "On" vs "In" vs "At"

    Can you please tell me which preposition is used in the following sentences.

    1) I am on a plane and in a row there are three seat..
    a)I am "In/At/On" the middle.
    b)I am "In/At/On" the left.
    c)I am "In/At/On" the right.

    2) I was on a bus and later on my friend asks me where were you on/in the bus.
    a)I was"In/At/On" the front.
    b'(I was"In/At/On" the middle.
    c)I was"In/At/On" the back.

    Will the preposition remain same if instead of bus I am in a classroom.

    3) I am reading a book and I ask one of my friend,Where is the picture?
    a) It is in/on/at the beginning of the book.
    b)It is in/on/at the middle of the book.

    Re: "On" vs "In" vs "At"

    1. "I am on a plane, in a row that has three seats".
    a. "in the middle" seat.
    b., c. "in the aisle/window" seat.

    2. I would use "in" for all three. Yes, for classroom.

    a. "at"
    b. "in"
    c. "at"
