    as in/for example

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-One of the meanings of "with" is "because of", as in "his face was red with anger".
    2-One of the meanings the dictionary gives for "with" is "because of", as in "his face was red with anger".

    3-One of the meanings of "with" is "because of", for example in "his face was red with anger".
    4-One of the meanings the dictionary gives for "with" is "because of", for example in"his face was red with anger".
