    The new law was generally admitted to be difficult to enforce.

    Hello everybody!

    The new law was generally admitted to be difficult to enforce.

    Does the sentence in question mean "it was generally admitted that the new law was difficult to enforce?"

    I think so, but I prefer to check.

    If so, I arrived at another conclusion, namely, that the verb "admit" belonged to the "reporting verbs".

    Thank you.
