    Provide with

    Hello all!

    As far as I know, the word "provide" followed by the preposition "with" if there is indirect object. In that case, I find the following sentence collected on a certain website quite ungrammatical.

    "Each grammar topic provides you questions and answers." Should it be "Each grammar topic provides you with questions and answers." ?

    Please provide your opinions!

    Thanks,
