    See http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/agree

    (1) Agree with:

    (a) to have the same views with (someone), emotions.

    => I don’t agree with you

    (b) to be consistent with

    => This story agrees with hers.

    => The copy agrees with the original.

    (c) to conform with

    => This play does not agree with the book

    (d) to be pleasing for (someone), to be fitting for (someone)

    => Spicy food does not agree with me.

    (2) Agree to (something, do something)

    (a) to consent to something

    => Do you agree to the condition?

    => I agree to his plan.

    => I didn't agree to a word of what she said.=> This means that: I did not consent to any word that she said.

    (b) to consent to do something

    => He agreed to leave her alone.

    => I agreed to pick her up at the bus station.

    (3) Agree on (something): to come to an understanding of

    => They have agreed on the terms of surrender.

    => We agreed on the price.

    .

    I didn't agree on a word of what she said.=> This means that: I did not come to an understanding of any word that she said.

    => If you want to use the preposition “with”, the sentence needs to change to: I didn’t agree with her on a word she said.

    問題2:

    請填介係詞並解釋原因

    I didn't agree ____ a word of what she said.

    => “on”, or “to”. See explanation above in green. However, “to” is a better preposition to use than “on” in this case. See examples below on why you cannot use “with”.

    為什麼這個空格是填 on 而不是 about 或 with.

    The government has agreed [on] a public inquiry into the helicopter crash

    See definitions above of “Agree with”, and the reasons below on why you cannot use “with”.

    However, many people have misused the preposition “with”, so you may have seen usage such as “I agree with his words” showing up a lot.

    (1) If you use definition (a), it means: The government has the same view with a public inquiry. This is incorrect. The government is a living thing. A public inquiry is a non-living thing. They cannot be compared together.

    (2) If you use definition (b), it means: The government is consistent with a public inquiry. This is incorrect. The government is a living thing. A public inquiry is a non-living thing. They cannot be compared together.

    (3) If you use definition (c), it means: The government confirms with a public inquiry. This is incorrect. The government is a living thing. A public inquiry is a non-living thing. They cannot be compared together.

    (4) If you use definition (d), it means: The government is pleasing for a public inquiry. This is incorrect.

    2008-04-17 04:50:39 補充:

    It is okay to use “agree about” though it is not a common usage.

    Agree about: to have the same opinion about someone or something.

    => I agree (with you) about Claire - she's not the right person for this job.

    2008-04-17 04:51:09 補充:

    => The government has agreed (with me) about a public inquiry ....

    => The government has had the same opinion (with me) about a public inquiry ....

    agree with 某人

    agree to V

    agree at某事

    agree about / agree on 我就沒看過了

    不過agree on應該後面接事物
