Could someone please tell me if the correct idiom is encouraged by/encouraged with?
Depends on the context, right?
He was encouraged by his dad.
The doctors are encouraged with the patient's progress.
This is what I thought as well. But then, I read somewhere that GMAT does not accept 'encourage with' and the correct idiom is always 'encouraged by'. I don't know if this is true or not. So, just wanted to confirm
