    Smile for completing/to completing/to complete

    A: these are important conditions for completing the general task in the transition period.
    B: these are important conditions to completing the general task in the transition period.
    C: these are important conditions to complete the general task in the transition period.


    Dear teacher,

    A is taken from a book, and I suppose it is correct. But as a learner, I am confused about whether I can use B and C to convey the same idea as A. Could you tell me which of A,B and C work for you and why? Thanks.

    Re: for completing/to completing/to complete

    What are the conditions for?
    The conditions are for something (a noun).
    The something is 'completing...'(gerund).
