    I would choose "to".

    Re: aspects to or of ?

    Strangely, in Cambridge dictionary online, the preposition "of" is more commonly used after the word "aspect" and before another noun. For example: which aspects of the job do you most enjoy?

    I'm wondering if there is a rule as to whether to use "to" or "of"?
