Thank you, CB, for the answers.

I wonder why "provide to" in D is not correct in my original example. I once read from a newspaper something like the following:

They provide assistance to the homeless.

Do you think it should have read "...provide assistance for..."?
If "...provide assistance to..." is also possible, does it have any difference from the "for" version?
Hello,

Could someone please help me with the questions on my last post before this? I wonder if "provide to" is also correct. If so, is there any difference from "provide from"? Thank you.
Hi,

I try to show its intrinsic logic language in them.

A. I provide our clients with useful information. ------

here [with] employed to stress the two things:

1. the clients are provided to be with useful information;

2. and the clients are useful or necessary for doing something;

---it is good

B. I provide our clients useful information. ----

[no preposition], that shows the speaker don't know what the information is useful to. ----it is correct.

C. I provide useful information for our clients. ----

[for] used to stress what is provided is necessary for the clients to do something. ----it is correct.

D. I provide useful information to our clients. -------

[to] used to only say [useful information] is provided so as to be in the clients.-----it is correct.
