    Default The new law was generally admitted to be difficult to enforce.

    Hello everybody!

    Does the above sentence in the form "The new law was generally admitted to be difficult to enforce" mean "It was generally admitted that the new law was difficult to enforce"?

    I think so, but it's better to ask you.

    Thank you.
