    go ahead with something

    Does "go ahead with something" have the meaning of "doing something in spite of others' doubt or opposition"?

    7dan-1. Choose the correct one for the blank.If somebody with something, they do it, although there may be a problem.

    ① puts down ② comes on ③ goes ahead
    ④ puts up ⑤ goes down

    Possibly, but not necessarily.

    7dan-1. Choose the correct one for the blank.If somebody with something, they do it, although there may be a problem.

    ① puts down ② comes on ③ goes ahead
    ④ puts up ⑤ goes down

    "goes ahead" is the only correct choice,.
