    Also, which one does sound more natural?
    He was often absent from school, so he got a bad grade. or
    he often missed his class, so he got a bad grade.
    Whie he studied, i went to church or

    a) for
    b) Either.
    c) It depends- absent could be though illness, while 'missed' suggests that they chose not to attend
    d) Either, though I'd use 'went to church'
