    to match

    hi,
    please, are these sentences ok? "this belt matches this pants", "this color matches your skin".
    can I say that the preposition 'on' matches 'depending' in the sentence
    "depending on the results of the first quarter..."?
    thanks.

    Say:
    This belt matches these pants.
    The word matches works there if the belt and the pants are the same color.
