    Unhappy Replacing a sentence

    Hello,

    Look at this sentence:

    Though Charles agreed, he had no attention of obeying.

    Is there any better expression or any idiom which can replace the underlined words? They look too simple like this.....

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    What you mean Huda-M is:

    Though Charles agreed, he had no intention of obeying

    Intention means that you have the idea to do something, or a course which you want to follow:

    Jane broke the plate which she was washing, but her intention was good.
    It’s my intention to go to the moon some day.


    Attention is to concentrate on something, or to be aware of something.

    If you pay attention in school, you will learn a lot.
    The noise in the corner caught my attention.

    Re: Replacing a sentence

    Although Charles agreed, he was just pulling the wool over their eyes

    Is that what you are looking for?
