"Berapa kata ada di kalimat itu?"

Can't you also say this as /Berapa kata dalam kalimat itu?/

I'm pretty sure you can also say this as /Berapa kata ada di dalam kalimat itu?/

Why don't we need "di" in front of the "dalam" here?" Is it optional or just wrong? And why?

I think it's just optional. If you were being very formal, you might use the /di/. But most don't in casual speech.
