- Published on 06 Jan 17

a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 3
 
Replace 'as' with 'because'.

As conjunctions, 'Because', 'As', 'For', 'Since' specify reasons in the following manner:

1) 'Because' shows the strongest reason.
2) 'Since' shows normally strong reason.
3) 'As/For' shows the weakest cause.

The correct sentence should be: I could not go to school because I was seriously ill. (A Strong case)
