    He was very disgusted AT/WITH material life.

    This is not my homework.

    He was very disgusted ...... material life.
    1:-at
    2:-with


    Please tell me which one is correct?
    If both are correct, do they have any difference in meaning?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: He was very disgusted AT/WITH material life.

    Bhaisahab,

    I read it in a book that you get "disgusted with someone" and "disgusted at something".

    So material life being a thing, should be used as "disgusted at material life".
    Is my information incorrect?

    Re: He was very disgusted AT/WITH material life.

    It was a non-standard book.When I rechecked there was written :- disgusted with(a person,life) Disgusted at(a thing)
    So I forgot that the author has put "life" as exception from "thing".

    Thank you.
