    As always, it's best to provide us a complete example or sentence. This will allow us to give a more complete and reliable answer.
    My vote would be to say "It contradicts X," which is simpler and shorter.

    I would accept one or the other preposition from my students. It depends a little on the context and I would really have to see the whole sentence to be honest.
