What is the diference between "i" and "ma", both meaning "in"?

I am not sure why they use "i" here but I found this sentence with ma:

  • Aia koʻu tūtū kāne ma ka lumi moe...

So, waiting for the explanation...

The options for translation did not give 'is'. Grandfather's was given. 's shows possession. As in my grandfather's bedroom. Need to add the word 'is' to the word options.

Yes 's can show possession, but it can also serve as a contraction "The fat's in the fire"

"i" implies "to" or "at." Whereas "ma" implies "in."
