    To be pleased about/with...

    Hi there,

    Would you please let me know if there's any difference between the two?

    Can we interchangeably use about and with with the verb please?

    I was asked the question. I'm wondering if there are any such differences, let alone use them in a context. Sorry anyway!

    'I was pleased with the gift you gave me.'

    'I was pleased about your exam success.'

    'I was pleased to hear about your engagement.'

    They are not interchangeable.
