Please read the following sentence and tell me which preposition is right there.
"If this arrangement is suitable To or FOR you, we can sign the contract."
I suppose 'for' is acceptable.

They are both acceptable and the difference is subtle. Not everyone makes any distinction.
"To" is probably more pertaining to 'your' way of thinking while 'for' is more about 'your' circumstances.

Both are acceptable. In response, I have a slight preference for 'for'.
"It's suitable for me but I don't know about him."
