    Question Conjunctions

    Hi,

    Can I use equally these conjunctions to express "for the reason that"?

    I asked John because he knows everything on that matter.
    I asked John for he knows everything on that matter.
    I asked John since he knows everything on that matter
    I asked John as he knows everything on that matter.

    Thank you!
