    cause/reason

    Hi there,

    Which one is correct, "for' or 'of'? Any difference?
    What is the cause (for/ of) the fire?
    What is the reason (for/of) the fire?

    What is the difference between 'reason' and 'cause'?

    Re: cause/reason

    The cause of something is what makes it happen; the reason is an explanation of it. We usually say cause of and reason for something.
