    Default arrange

    Are these sentences correct:
    1-They arranged it for him to be attacked.
    2-They did it for him to panic.
    3-They'd do anything for him to suffer.

    No, they're not. They should read respectively:
    1. They arranged for him to be attacked.
    2. They did it to make him panic.
    3. They'd do anything to make him suffer.

    Chears :wink:

    Thanks.
    How about using "so that"?
    4-They arranged it so that he should be attacked.
    5-They did it so that he would panic.
    6-They'd do anything so that he would suffer.

    Those are fine, IMO.
