Student or Learner
Can you please tell me which of the following is correct ?
1 consider on accepting or;
2 consider accepting
Preposition should come along with a noun if I'm not mistaken, therefore shouldn't it be
"consider accepting" ?
I can't at the moment think of a context in which 'consider on' could be acceptable, though prepositions can be followed by the -ing form of a verb: I look forward to seeing you, for example.
Please try to give more context. It is usually difficult to judge whether words or phrases are acceptable or not without full context. For example, most people would initially say that 'to seeing' is ungrammatical, but 'seeing' follows 'to' naturally in the sentence in my first paragraph.
ps. (later) Raymott got there first.

Sorry for not giving full text, here
Can you please consider on accepting our tax return
Can i say only this part of the sentence ?
"would you consider on accepting our proposal?"
Then what is the best way to consolidate a formal sentence to ask some one's concern on something or requesting to consider on something?
I'm just a beginner
