    "You don't think he's up to handling it?"

    Re: Up to....

    Hi!

    It seems to me it means "he's going (thinking) to start to do it (or to solve it)"

    Re: Up to....

    "Up to" also means that able to do something. Is it correct?

    Re: Up to....

    "You don't think he's up to handling it?"

    What does it mean do you think?
    to me,this sentence means "you don't think he is handling it" ("up to" here is used to show the action that is happening)

    another examples about "up to"

    I think she's up to something (I'm sure that she's doing something bad)

    hope this helps!

    my 2 cents
