    Among, In, Of

    I am confused about using "in", "among", and "of" in this context:

    "The doctor suspected mental disorders ( in / among / of ) the patients."

    Do they mean different things in this context? Or are some of them wrong?

    Welcome to the forums, dodier.

    I'd use 'in' if forced to choose.

    I'd be more inclined to say 'The doctor suspected that the patients had mental disorders'.
