    to usage

    Which are correct:


    1- They thought he was the Savior, to lead them to freedom.
    2-He was not the Savior, to lead them to freedom.
    3-He was not the Savior, in order to lead them to freedom.

    4-He was a great man, to lead them to freedom.
    (Meaning: He was a great man, who was to lead them to freedom.)

    5-He was not a great man, to lead them to freedom.
    (He was not a great man and so he could not lead them to freedom.)

    6-He was not a great man, in order to lead them to freedom.
    (Same meaning as 5)

    Re: to usage

    I'm sorry to say none of them is really clear.


    1- They thought he was the Savior, the one to lead them to freedom.

    2-He was not the Savior, the one to lead them to freedom.
    3-He was not the Savior, in order the one to lead them to freedom.


    4, 5 and 6, same changes as 1, 2 and 3.
