J'habite à Paris vs Marie habite dans le Minnesota

Hi, I have a question. The level A0 tests check "J'habite à ..." as correct, while lessons and tests in A1 level use dans le or en like "Marie habite dans le Minnesota". I can't see the difference on when should I use the à or dans le - en.

The choice of preposition depends on whether you speak of a city (à), a country of feminine gender (en), a country of masculine singular gender (à), of masculine plural gender (aux), a region (dans), etc.
