    Lack in or lack

    According to the book I'm using in class (Pearson Success Advanced) you say 'He lacks confidence', but 'He lacks in common sense'?
    Can you also say 'He lacks in confidence' and 'He lacks common sense'? What is the difference?
    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum, Floor31.

    You question went unanswered, because it was in the wrong forum. I have moved it to a forum where people look for such questions.
