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