    In post #4, "based" is mandatory in "Costs will be determined based on design, construction bids and other factors."

    But in post #7, "based" is merely optional in "Scores are determined based on distance and accuracy for each event."

    How can I tell when to leave out "based"?

    If in doubt, leave it in.

    It will never be wrong.
