    Can you show me sentence of a verbal object after a preposition? I don't think Mike wants to show me.

    It's not about reluctance. What you ask for does not exist.

    Verbs have objects, direct and indirect. Prepositions have objects. There is no overlap.

    Re: That-clause is an adverb clause or a complement?

    No, I just want to see sentence with a verbal object after a preposition because I think I never mentioned that.

    Re: That-clause is an adverb clause or a complement?

    I'm not asking if it exists but I'm asking you if you can show me and I never said a verbal object can go after a preposition but I don't know why Mike said that. I'm not sure if some of you can read the part where it says "show me."
