    with or without prepositions

    Greetings everybody

    Another questions from klovi
    So, recently I've been working on Gerunds and Infinitives, and I found few expressions where I would use prepositions but my answer key says differently
    1.) have problems: a) with doing something or b) - doing something
    2.) waste time: a) on doing something or b) - doing something
    3.) admit: a) to do something or b) to / on doing something c) - doing something

    Which are correct?

    Re: with or without prepositions

    In 1) and 2) using and omitting the prepositions are both correct. Personally I prefer to omit them.

    As to 3), in my opinion both "admit to do something" and "admit on doing something`are incorrect.
