    Default speeding

    Robert denies............the speed limit.

    a. exceeding b. have exceeded c. to having exceeded

    In my opinion, a is correct, though c could be correct as well if there were no preposition [ i.e. to] following the verb deny. Am I wrong?

    Thank you very much in advance.
