Dear native English speakers,
Which preposition(s) would be used, at, with, in ,on, over, by, about or to?
(a) You look disappointed _________ the score.
(b) You look depressed _________ the score.
(c) You look happy _________ the score.

Thanks in advance.

(a) about, by
(b) about
(c) about, with

I think others would be correct but these seem the most natural to me in each case.

I'd probably use 'with' with all of them but I showed the post to my brother and we agreed that 'at, with' and 'about' are OK with all of them and 'by' is OK with (a) and (b).
