In German why is the preposition "in" sometimes "in," but sometimes "im"? Can some explain and show an example?

The preposition is always "in", but it's combined with the following "dem" im = in dem am = an dem zum = zu dem In all cases, you can in principle replace the contraction with the two words, but sometimes that sounds a bit unnatural. So it's better to always use the contractions. There are other contractions like "ins = in das", but these are used mostly in spoken German, and are considered bad style in written German.
