    Thank you.
    I have a painted glass.
    The curtains do not match the furniture.

    With #1, I assume you mean a drinking glass. If not, then it doesn't work.
    With #2, we don't normally say "it matches with". We just say "it matches" or "it doesn't match". We use "with" if we use "match" as a noun.

    The curtains are a good match with the furniture.
    OR
    The curtains are a good match for the furniture.

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for the quick reply.

    This question was asked in an entrance exam for a b-school.
    I'm not sure about the 'glass' asked in the question.
