    Default preposition question

    Hi Teachers,

    Which preposition should be used in the following sentence? "From" or "of" ?

    "This item must not be taken out without the approval __ the manager."


    Thank you for your help!

    This item must not be taken out without the approval of the manager.

    But also:

    This item must not be taken out without approval from the manager.

    You usually get approval of something and approval for something from someone.

    My pick: approval from the manager.
