    2) The little boy is so lovable, which makes it hard hard for people to say no to him. You may mean this: The little boy is so lovable that it is hard for people to say "no" to him.
    3) The way he asked me for the money makes it hard for me hard to say no to him.
    4) He ask me to lend him my book in a way that makes it hard for me to say no.
