Can I use "to deal with" instead of "in response"? Does it have same meaning?
Yes, in this case, you can use the expression "to deal with" to have the same meaning as "in response to". These two expressions have very similar meanings. The only major difference is that "to deal with" means that a problem needs to be solved or fixed while "in response to" does not always mean there is a problem. "In response to" just means there is a result or an effect from something, but it could be both positive or negative. Ex: The company is producing more of the product in response to a high demand. Ex: She drinks a lot of water to deal with headaches.
