TO CR

 

You are right about the use of at in your example.  But you changed the sentence.

 

Look at the mark on the floor.

 

Look on the floor. (for your missing sock).

 

Look in the floor.  Why in the floor?  Answer to a question about where a secret safe is located with the treasure map inside. 

 

The use of prepostions depends on the context of the sentence.  We both win!
