    Default match to/with

    Dear teachers,

    In the following sentence "to" is correct to use or "with"?

    Match each word on the left to/with its synonym on the right.

    thanks

    Thanks.
    You could use either. You could also say "Pair each word with its synonym".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    "With" sounds better to me.
