    The word "information"

    Hello,

    I would like to know which of the two phrases is correct:

    "Internet can be used to find information about a school subject" or
    "Internet can be used to find information for a school subject" .

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: The word "information"

    They both can work, but the meanings would be different.

    "About a school subject" means about the subject itself.
    "For a school subject" means to be used in that subject.
