    Default Keep a secret for / to yourself

    Hello,

    Can you please help me with the following sentence:

    Can you keep a secret.........yourself?

    What should I write: for or to

    It is a class exercise and I have only this sentence with no context at all. We must fill the gap.

    Thank you for your help

    (Not a Teacher)

    I would say the answer is 'to'.

    Though normally, we say "Can you keep a secret?" or "Can you keep this (the secret) to yourself?"
