Missy tells Daniel that she will help him if he does/washes the dishes for the next month. And Daniel agrees to/on/with the deal.

Do all of the underlined words fit in the above and convey the same idea? Thanks.

Hi

Missy tells Daniel that she will help him if he does/washes both are OK the dishes for the next month. And Daniel agrees to/on/with the deal. 'to' is best, 'with' is OK, 'on' is not so good here

Thanks, Clive.

Could you explain more on the "agree to/on/with" part? What are the subtle differences among them? Thanks.

Sometimes, no difference in meaning is intended. However, here are a few comments on subtleties.

agree to If I agree to a deal, it implies that I had no part in negotiating the deal. eg Someone puts a paper in front of me and say 'If you agree to this, sign here'.

agree with If I agree wirth something, it suggests that I approve of it. eg 'I agree with the government's policy on climate change.'

agree on 'Agreeing on' usually involves more than one person,all having a discussion with different opinions. eg They all had different ideas about which TV channel to watch, but finally they agreed on channel 17.

Best wishes, Clive
Thanks, Clive.

Got it!
