    Cool nothing wrong

    Hello!

    What's the right structure after the phrase "there is nothing wrong"?

    -There is nothing wrong doing this.

    -There is nothing wrong in doing this.

    -There is nothing wrong with doing this.

    -There is nothing wrong to do this (I don't like this one!).

    Thank you
    W

    These two are both OK. I prefer the second.

    Maybe you'd use the first one more with "in followed by a verb" There's nothing wrong in using a computer in class".

    And the second followed by a noun, noun phrase, pronoun. There's nothing wrong with the way you look. There's nothing wrong with it ( my car).

    Am I right?
