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?

Example 2.

Daniel: Do you hate me?
Susan: Quite the contrary-- I love you!

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."
Q: contrary to を使った例文を教えて下さい。

-Contrary to what you might have heard about me I am a very good student
-Contrary to what you might have assumed, I was helping him get up from the chair
*you can also say “as opposed to” in place of “contrary to”
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."

「Contrary」の類語とその違い

Q: contrary と inverse と converse はどう違いますか?
A: Although these words are sometimes used interchangeably I think I would myself restrict them to particular situations:

Contrary - This is particularly associated with thinking or being something different almost as a character trait, and has connotations of being awkward.

Inverse - This is used in mathematics a lot and is perhaps best left in that field

Contrast is a noun. It is the state of two different things near each other, especially light and dark colors.
Q: to the contrary と on the contrary と in the contrary はどう違いますか?
A: First of all, 'In the contrary' is incorrect.
As for the other two; On the contrary and To the contrary, the meanings are similar, but their usage are different. 'On the contrary' Is usually used to show that you disagree with something strongly. For example; "He said that she very was nice; on the contrary, I think she is very mean!"

While 'To the contrary' is used when you want imply the opposite of something without a strong denial. For example; "He kept smoking despite medical advice to the contrary."(So it isn't used as a strong expression in an argument when compared with the other.)
