Preposition use


I have a problem with preposition use in the following example: “This is because the impact of the proposed model on leases is significant.”

Is "on" wrong here? Why use "for" instead?

Don't worry.  I think the program thinks that the 'the proposed model' is 'for leases'.  It thinks that the model and the leases are directly linked.  If you are trying to discuss the influence of the model ON leases, then 'on' IS CORRECT.


I hope this helps.
