    'Of' would be incorrect.

    I have one more question connected with it. This is because of the imagine word is not attractived any preposition?
    where can I know from that which word attract preposition? Are there any sort of list for these words which are attractived prepositions?
    Thank you.

    "Attractived" is not a word.

    Verbs like "imagine" are said to be "transitive" -- they require a direct object. Not a prepositional phrase.
