Topic: verb and its pronoun
Posted: Saturday, June 6, 2020 8:23:22 AM
What preposition should be used with the verb "refuse"?

- I won't take it, - he refused of/from it.

But one can 'deny' the fact of something.

Is "deny" needed an object or not?

'We have no ...', they denied.

It seems to me that I asked this question and got answers, but I cannot find this topic. I'll have to ask again, then. Are "refuse", "object" and 'deny' not needed objects?


'I will not take it', he refused.

'Who has it but you?' he objected.

'We have no ...', they denied.

Thank you, Audiendus. Then it will be good to use "circle-shaped" so as not be ambiguous in my description.
