Help me 'Admit of' &'allow of' are the same? -The latest events admit of several interpretations. -The evidence allows of only one interpretation ‑ he was murdered by his wife.

"Admit of" sounds very formal to me, such as in an academic research paper. "Allows" (without "of") is much more natural English.

Yes, the two expressions have synonymous meanings in these two sentences. However, you should drop the "of" after "admit" and "allows" in these cases.
