Q: What is the difference between 「this morning」
(ex)I left mine at home this morning . and 「in this morning」
(ex)His bag was in my room in this morning . ?
A: "in this morning" isn't something commonly used, unless the sentence is something like "He hasn't come in this morning" (He hasn't come into work this morning)

"His bag was in my room in this morning" is awkward. "His bag was in my room this morning" is how you would naturally say it.

A: "ex" is short for "example".
