    for or as

    He could read her mind, as his next comment surprised her a lot.

    He could read her mind, for his next comment surprised her a lot.

    Which of the sentences is more natural in terms of the conjuction "as" or "for"?

    Thanks!

    Neither of them make any sense. How does the fact that his next comment surprised her a lot prove that he could read her mind? I don't see any connection between the two halves of the sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
