Latin Grammar: in

Unusquisque liber homo habeat in boscis suis aereas, ancipitrum et spervariorum et falconum, aquilarum, et de heyrinis et habeat similiter mel quod inventum fuerit in boscis suis.

The Preposition in

Like many adjectives in Latin, in can take both the ablative and nominative cases.  In the above example, in takes the ablative because it does not indicate motion and is best translated as "in."  With verbs of motion, however, in takes the accusative and is best translated as "into." 

Indicate whether in should take the ablative or the accusative in the following examples.  Use the main verb to determine whether motion is intended or not.

1.  Ego in ... sum. 

2.  Ille in ... venit. 

3.  In ... eo. 

4.  In ... vivimus. 

5.  Illum in ... ago.
