What is another word for "with"?

I am doing my English homework, but for some reason the Google Doc won't let me type the word "with" for some reason. I want to type this sentence: "Margot is responsible because when Anne asks her to dance with her, Margot says she has to help with supper."

So, what is another word for "with"?

Answer:

alongside, near, beside

Explanation:

Answer:

The preposition "with" is used twice in the sentence, "with her" and "with supper". One answer will not work in both instances.

Explanation:

Examples of synonyms that can work in the clause, "...when Anne asks her to dance with her..." are:
-- "...when Anne asks her to dance by her..."
-- "...when Anne asks her to dance alongside her..."
-- "...when Anne asks her to dance beside her..."
-- "...when Anne asks her to dance accompanying her..."

The clause "...Margot says she has to help with supper" is an informal way of saying, "... Margot says she has to help fixing supper" or "... Margot says she has to help preparing supper"

Using a synonym for the preposition "with" will not work; for example:
-- "...Margot says she has to help by supper"
-- "...Margot says she has to help among supper"
-- "...Margot says she has to help beside supper"
The prepositions do not convey the meaning.
