Q: On the contrary を使った例文を教えて下さい。
A: Example 1.

Susan: Didn't you think the food was gross?

You could also say "quite the contrary" which emphasizes that he/she is opposing a statement. I think it's typically used when expressing personal opinions or emotions (or at least, that's how I use it).

Example 2.

Daniel: Do you hate me?

Q: "to the contrary" and "on the contrary" を使った例文を教えて下さい。
A: Every example I can think of for "to the contrary" also contains the word "evidence", such as:
"The suspect claims to be innocent, but police have obtained evidence to the contrary."
"Some people believe the Earth is flat, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary."

As for "on the contrary", you can use it to disagree. For example:
"Bob says oranges are the best fruit; on the contrary, I believe apples are better."

You can also use it to emphasize:
"I do not think apples are delicious; on the contrary, I think they are disgusting."

-Contrary to what you might have heard about me I am a very good student

Q: on the contrary を使った例文を教えて下さい。
A: A better choice would be "I'm not making fun (a fool) of them, in fact I respect them." In fact in this case means something similar to 実は.. If you wanted to say this in Japanese, you wouldn't use バカにしてない、それと比べるとそんけんしています but you would rather say バカにしてない、実はそんけんしています。To your second question, I wouldn't use "even" because it indicates a lower limit (最低限) for example, "I even took out the garbage" ゴミも捨てたわよ のような上目線な態度があります、この場いそれはNGです. The better choice would be I "actually" respect them. Which is the same as the first question "actually" = "実は."

Q: on the contrary と in contract はどう違いますか?
A: I think you mean 'in contrast'?

Both mean 'in opposition to'.

On the contrary is often used to tell someone that what they have stated is incorrect, or when something is stated that may be believed but is not true.
E.g. 'I heard that if you swallow gum it stays in your stomach for 7 years.'
'On the contrary friend, that is an urban myth.'

In contrast means that there is a stark and clear difference between something and its opposite.
E.g. Studies have consistently shown that swallowing gum has no problems for health. In contrast, our results reveal the exact opposite.

Hope this helps.
