    Should I use "with" or "by" in the following sentences?

    Hi all,

    Should I use "with" or "by" in the following sentences?

    A.)How to answer a question with four pages of A4 paper?
    B.)How to answer a question by using four pages of A4 paper?

    I think B is the correct one.

    Thanks in advance.

    First of all, your questions are not questions. They should start with "How do I answer... or How can I answer...?"

    Second, while I understand what you mean, I don't understand what the number of pages has to do with answering questions. Some questions can be answered with one sentence. Others cannot be answered with 100 pages.

    Rover_KE, I am deeply sorry for having gone against the guidelines for posting. In response to the previous post above, therefore, I would like to make it clear that I am not a teacher.
