I understand this sentence is not the best example, but my point is how to deal with repeated prepositions of noun objects with a preposition-having-verb.
For example: in using DEMAND A OF Blet's suppose A include multiple nouns connected by OFthen, in details the phrase will look like DEMAND A[something OF something] OF B
Adding complication, let's suppose B is also multiple-noun object including OF.Then, the phrase will look like
DEMAND A[something of something] OF B[something of something], which will finally look like
DEMAND something OF something OF something OF something
so, how do you deal with this to mean DEMAND A OF B?
There can be many other similar cases.For example, "put A in B" can all become as follows
PUT someting in something IN something in something
