    with

    Hi there,
    I don't know the meaning of 'with' in the following sentence.

    With 200 days to go to the opening of the Olympics, the Beijing government faces the herculean task of cleaning up the city's polluted air and reining in its chaotic traffic.

    Thanks
    pete

    Re: with

    In this sentence 'with' indicates possession - a synonym might be 'having'.
