An inconsistency I've found…

A Kaplan practice question offered on the website asserts "to exchange X with Y" is correct, and not "to exchange X for Y"

Can someone kindly provide a few examples using "same to X as to Y"? (I am not a native speaker.)

I find one example in the attached document in this post.

"Our pledge is the same to them as to our supporters"

Here, X and Y are just simple nouns. Is it the only way of using this idiom? In any cases, can X and Y be verb?

It will be great to see any OG examples for this idiom.

Thx for your time in advance.

This comprehensive list of idioms is very cool! Thank you very much!
I am not native speaker and struggle with this example: As per the market experts there won't be any immediate affect to the market due to the recent buy out.
Because affect is usually verb.
