Is this the correct answer?

I was doing a sample Toeic questions via ETS Canada.

http://www.etscanada.ca/students/toeic_sample_ques...

In Part VI New TOEIC example question, can someone please explain to me why the answer is (B) "according", not (C) "according to"...?

Q: As we discussed, you will be paid twice a month _ _ _ _ the company' s normal payroll schedule.

(A) accords

(B) according

(C) according to

(D) accordance with

Is "(B) according" the correct answer?

Please give some examples if possible, thanks a lot!

    (B) is definitely not the correct answer.

    The correct answer should be (C)

    "according to" is a preposition. It means "following" or "based on".

    for example, according to the weather forecast, there will be a snow storm tomorrow.

    So the above sentence you have means that they follow the company's normal payroll schedule to pay you twice a month. (most companies in the US pay bi-weekly instead of monthly)

    I hope this answers your question.

    根據ACCORDING

    有及時執行的味道,大部分都討論現行的狀況

    所以大部分的句子,都有加-ING

    ACCORDING 後接的是主詞 所以不加 to 若是 接動詞 則加to

    希望對你有幫助 !
