Contemplating on OR Contemplating about

Post by Thelearner » Sun Mar 11, 2018 7:45 am

Here i'm trying to say that im contemplating on the effects/evils of hedonism.

So which is correct -

Contemplating the evils of hedonism
Contemplating on the evils of hedonim
Contemplating about the evils of hedonism

Thank you.

You contemplate something, so #1 is correct.
