    "for someone to do something"

    Hello!
    I have "serious" trouble to work out when I can use the structure "for someone to do something". I guess there are some cases where we can use other structures instead, but I donīt really know when itīs more advisable or appropiate. For instance, I propose some examples. Are they all correct?.

    I did it so that you can take adventage of it.
    I did it for you to take advantage of it.

    It was done so that they can understand it.
    It was done for them to understand it.

    This is the moment for you to lead the group. (Well, here it seems clearer than at the previous examples).

    Thank you very much in advance.

    All of them are correct.But pay attention you always need (NOUN Clause) after (So that) it means you need Subject + main verb.In your second sentences you have a more emphatic on (you)
