    on / in

    Hi,

    There are books in / on the shelves.
    John is writing on a piece of paper.
    He is taking notes on a piece of paper.

    Which preposition is suitable in the first sentence? And also, can "on" preposition be used for the last two sentences?

    Thank you.

    On​ is the one in all three sentences.

    Note: write in/on.

    (Don't leave spaces on either side of a slash.)
