    "interfere in something" and "interfere with something"

    Hi! I have seen this.
    I don't think the supervisor has the right to interfere ________ our private affairs.


    a. of
    b. with
    c. in
    d. at
    I choose
    c. in, but I am not sure of it because there are two structures "interfere in something" and "interfere with something". Help please.

    I agree that 'in' is the best answer in this context.
