I am new to this forum and posting for the first time. Please help me with below Idioms question and also explain the difference with some other examples if possible. Which sentence is ideomatically correct? A. She is credited for solving numorous cases. B. She is credited with solving numorous cases. C. She is credited as being a great detective. Thanks all. ### GMAT/MBA Expert GMAT Instructor Joined 04 Dec 2012 Posted: 2094 messages Followed by: 238 members Upvotes: 1443 Top Reply In your example, B is the correct idiom. You credit someone WITH doing the thing that he/she did. Newton is credited with discovering... You credit some attribute TO a person/entity responsible for creating it. The success of the mission was credited to years of hard work. You give credit (used only as a noun) FOR something in exchange. We received credit for all of our hard work. "Credit as" is never correct. _________________ Ceilidh Erickson Manhattan Prep GMAT & GRE instructor EdM in Mind, Brain, and Education Harvard Graduate School of Education Manhattan Prep instructors all have 99th+ percentile scores and expert teaching experience.

Well Credited with and credited for both are correct idiom. It all comes down to in what context you are using. John should get a lot of credit for the team's successâ€¦..Here Credit for is the correct idiom. Credited with is generally used when some achieved is doneâ€¦â€¦Newton is credited with various laws. In your sentence A should be right.
