Which one of the following prepositions is incorrect?

  • The government agreed with the offer
  • The government agreed to the offer


  • They finally agreed with the proposal
  • They finally agreed to the proposal

Both of your examples have similar meaning: that an agreement was reached.

A subtle difference in meaning might be that using with, both sides were mutually happy with the agreement.

They agreed with each other.

Using to, one side may not be as happy as the other, that the terms may have been forced upon them.

Japan agreed to the terms of surrender.
