    Question Question about a seminar paper title

    Hi to everyone :)

    I had a question regarding a title for my seminar paper.

    I think it should be "challenges for companies in the automotive industry", I asked two native speakers if it sounds correct to them and I got two controversial answers, one told me that she would say "challenges of companies in the automotive industry" and another one said that "for" in this case sutes better to her.

    Context:
    In this seminar paper I will be reviewing a new legislation and its impact (possible pros and cons/ expenses and other difficulties) on the companies in the industry.


    What do you think guys?

    Thank you in advance!

    Use "for".

    If you say "challenges of companies in the automotive industry", you're implying that the companies are the challenges/problems!

    As has been mentioned, of is completely wrong. The correct preposition is for.
