Q.  I did not (1) / go to college (2) / because it was (3) / raining.(4) / No Error (5)
- Published on 06 Jan 17

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

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

Here, it is a weak case, correct usage is 'as it was raining'.

The correct sentence should be: I did not go college as it was raining.

**Although Grammar prescribes different rules of 'Because', 'As', 'For', yet it is not a hard and fast rule.

e.g. My parents traveled by air 'as/for/because' they wanted to arrive early.

You'd better take the motorcycle 'as/for/since' part of the road is blocked.

Both my cousin and his friend cannot come early 'as/for/because' they are busy doing their work.
