Hi Everyone!
I think, in passive forms, "be replaced by/with" + the agent.
To my curiosity about "to be replaced with/by", I sometimes see you say, for instance,
"This is a good man" can be replaced by "This is a man who is good".
"Teachers will ever be replaced bycomputers in the classroom.
On the other hand, some other times, I see you say, for example,
"In all my numbered sentences, "exist" can be replaced with "are", or vice versa."
"Any damaged things can be replaced with others [by us].=> We can replace any damaged things with others.

Whoever doesn't own what he promises to those who do not deserve must not promise it.
