    Re: Are the following sentences correct? Please help

    Your uses of "based on/according to" are generally correct, but you have some other errors in the sentences.

    1. I make a decision [or make decisions] based on/according to the need [or needs] of the situation.
    2. I make a decision based on/according to the situation and its need. [The possessive "its" does not have an apostrophe]
    3. I make a decision that suits the need [or decisions that suit the needs] of the situation and act accordingly.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    A better title would have been I make decision.

    I will keep that in mind :). I always have difficulties with naming the title.

    Can I say naming the title?
