    Try that.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    1)Why we use "the". Is it due to reason that "end" is a noun.

    2) Can I use "on" instead of "for the". Is using ON wrong.

    Charlie told you a better way to say it, which is what you asked for.

    Using your versions marks you out as a non-native speaker.
