to 的用法

請問以下使用是否正確?

Please change the order to suggested quantity.

請將訂單更改為建議的數量

是否to後面一定要加原型動詞呢?即然是訂單被建議, 後面不能用被動式嗎?

    要改的不是quality,而是quantity

    這句的邏輯不是to change A into B(把A換成B)

    而是to change C of A(把A裡的C改掉):把訂單裡的數量改成所建議的數量。

    寫成:The quantity of our order has to be changed as suggested.比較沒有歧義。

    to change C of A to B.才是本句的邏輯。

    Please change the order to a new one with THE suggested quantity.

    "Please change the order to be suggested quantity" doesn't make any sense

    to 在這裏是介係詞。

    suggested 是過去分詞當形容詞用。和被動無關。

    Originally, "Please change the order to suggested quantity" shall be "Please change the order to be suggested quantity". However, due to the its straight forward meaning, "be" is omitted. Such an omission makes "to" become a "preposition", "suggested" as an adjective to describe "quality", and "quality" as the object for "to"

    By the way, "to" can be used with root form of a verb to form "infinitive". This is how is used in your questioned sentence. However, "to" can also be used

    as "preposition", for example:

    I am looking forward to seeing you soon.

    as "adverb"

    They come to the house.

    Therefore, don't always think "to" can only be followed with 原型動詞.

    master Louis ! Thank you for pointing out a typo in my explanation. Yes, it shall be "quantity" not "quality".!
