    attend vs tend

    Which sentences are correct?

    1. I have a matter to attend to.
    2. I have a matter to tend to.

    3. He attended to the victim.
    4. He tended to the victim.

    I would say that 1 and 4 are correct, but I'm not sure.

    Thanks.

    Can you explain these sentences to me? I don't understand them. I thought I knew the words, but it seems they have some other meaning that I have no idea of.
