I am assuming "based upon" and "based on" are basically the same phrase.
In my language, "based upon" and "according to" have pretty much the same translation. What is actually the difference?
Could anyone explain this to me? Are there any example sentences that you could give me to show the difference?
EDIT: I am not sure why this is being voted down. I am here to learn, and these two phrases are very similar in Mandarin Chinese. Sorry.
