    It would depend on what you say.  If you wanted to say that the road started at the edge of the village and finished at the edge of the town you'd use A.  If you wanted to say the road went through the village to the town you'd use B.  The more common usage would be B.

    It depends.  "At" would imply the road begins, and ends at the edges of each place.  "In" means the ends are somewhere within the places, which would make the road longer.

    I would say phrase B ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
