Hello, everyone!

Which should I use "for" or "in" in this sentence?
- This tendency can be found [for / in] these samples.

I think this sentence can be written as
"These samples have this tendency", and this would be more natural but if I dare to write it like the above sentence, it would be "in" because of "found"?

In addition, a certain "phenomenon" or something occurs [for / in] samples, which should I use?

Thank you very much

    IN these examples.

    IN samples.

    It's IN all the way!

    "For" means "on behalf of". The sentence would not work as well using "for".

    "...and i'm going to use "in" in the report, of which has a very tight time schedule within which I must reach", sounds a bit better :)
