    Use in in all three sentences. They will all be okay when you correct a word in sentence 3. Can you find the incorrect word?

    "at" is okay for the first one.

    I would only use "in".

    I consider "The education is good in/at that place" correct. However, neither one is natural. We would say "[The] education is good there".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No I got the answer. I was amending the sentence as it was initially.

    It's good that you spotted the misspelling of "quite" and corrected it. However, it was pointless to repeat the "at" or "in" part when you already knew the answer.
