    Cool prep TO

    Hello!

    Are these sentences correct?:

    -This is not the kind of music I listen to.


    - We finally agreed on these conditions. OR we finally agreed to these conditions.

    Cheers!

    Re: prep TO

    They are all correct.

    However, the last two have different meanings.

    'We finally agreed on these conditions' means that you and somebody else have been formulating conditions for a third party to abide by.

    'We finally agreed to these conditions' means that you and somebody else accepted conditions which a third party had required.
