    Re: leave with

    Generally, we leave decision making to other people if we don't want to do it ourselves.

    The director leaves the most difficult decisions to the chairman.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: leave with

    , but I wouldn't say the others were downright wrong. My preferred 'Acceptability Sequence' would be

    • The director leaves the most difficult decisions to the chairman.
    • The director leaves the chairman with the most difficult decisions
    • The director leaves the most difficult decisions with the chairman.
