    NOT A TEACHER.

    I don't think no. 2 is right, and even if it is, it's unidiomatic.

    Re: agree - agreeable - in agreement

    The word 'agreeable' doesn't have to have anything directly to do with actually agreeing. Sometimes it does. But in those cases it means something like 'ready/disposed to agree' - e.g. 'Speak to John, and if he is agreeable then go ahead'.

    But more often, in my experience, an agreeable person is just amiable.
