I was studying prepositions and stumble upon these phrases:

First

  1. to my knowledge.
  2. for my knowledge.

Second

  1. Go for a ride
  2. Go to a ride

Third

  1. He went to England to a Sales Conference.
  2. He went to England for a Sales Conference.

Which one from these two is correct and why?

All of them are potentially correct depending on the context.

"To the best of my knowledge, the answer is cheese." "And yet for all of my knowledge I was unable to answer him."

"I'm going for a ride on the bus." "I'm going to the annual haunted hay ride."

The first one is more likely, as you'd generally go for a ride. Going to a ride would imply the ride is the final location you're heading to.

"He went to England to a Sales Conference." (He went to England, and went to the conference.) "He went to England for a Sales Conference." (The reason he went to England is for the sales conference.)
