    Of, For or To : Preposition confusion! Pls help.

    Hello Friends,


    I'm not sure which preposition I'd use in this sentence, so pls help me out. The sentence is: "The problem with UNO is that they have very "simplistic view" and approach of every problems."


    I'm not sure the propostion "of" (underline word) is correct or not I think "to" or even "for" might also be correct in place of "of". So pls help.


    Thanks

    The correct way to write it would be;
    "The problem with the UNO is that they have a very "simplistic view" of and approach to every problem."
