Post by ansonman »

I have made up the sentences below.

(1a) I purchased a computer program for you made to simplify complicated calculations.

(1b) I purchased a computer program made to simplify complicated calculations for you.

(2a) I chose a watch for you that was designed by two famous French artists eighty years ago.

(2b) I chose a watch that was designed by two famous French artists eighty years ago for you.

I am not sure where to place "for you" correctly in the sentences. Please help me. Thank you.
