    preposition = bold
    object of preposition = underlined

    instead of the quick release from carbohydrates

  • English -

    Thank you for the quick response! So, is release the object or quick release? For the second one, the object would obviously be carbohydrates.

  • English -

    Only "release." Adjectives are not objects of anything, and "quick" is an adjective.
