An English-Chinese dictionary compiled by Chinese experts some thirty years ago contains this phrase in the entry of 'supply':
supply sb an answer
But I've never encountered any sentences with such a structure. I asked about it on a Chinese website for English-learning. They did find online a few sentences with "supplied me/ him/ her/ us/ them + a noun".
My question is whether this structure can be used and whether the first object has to be a pronoun (this is what I speculate) if we do use it.
Thank you very much.
You need to use 'with'
Obviously, we had to supply her with an answer very quickly.
