I am reading through MGMAT SC and one of the idiom listed is:

"allows for"

Now, I have seen many sentences that use "allow to" or with out "for" or "to". I am confused what's the correct usage of this word. Can someone please explain...?

allow for is an idiom and means taking into consideration

Let's say, U have to allow for the possibility of having the same question on your GMAT during your preparation. This means take into consideration in your planning

Hope it is of help.
