Thank you very much and could you please give me more examples?
A: It's probably because 'seem' and 'be' are not synonymous. When you say, "It might seem arbitrary..." you are saying that it appears arbitrary when it isn't. When you say, "It might be arbitrary..." you're implying that it is definitely, or more than likely arbitrary.
Q: I want to say that technology is applied to every aspect of the society in order to improve the society. Can anyone tell me which is correct, "Technology is applied to every aspect of the society to improve" or "Technology is applied to every aspect of the society to be improved", and why?
A: "Technology is applied to every aspect of society (in order) to improve it." (上達するために)

「社会」を一般的に話すと「the」は使いません。
"He is a member of society". - 一般的
"The society in which we live..." - 特別

improve = 他動詞なので対象が必要です。この場合は代名詞にするとOK.

"the society to be improved" = 上達する社会
This means we are specifying *which* society we want to improve, and doing so by using technology.

"apply glue to the part to be repaired".
"part to be repaired" = 修理する部分
