When comparing two things, such as A and B. If A is better than B, can I say "it's A for B"?

    Will you please give an example? The way you asked, I tend to say that you should not say "it's A for B".

I feel what you may be trying to say is “A over B”, as in “I’d choose A over B”.

“A for B” doesn’t sound right for a comparison, and makes me think more of substitution, i.e. substituting “A for B”.
