    reason

    Hi
    Would you please tell me what the problem with this sentence is? "Private education is banned in this country. The reason of that is..."
    Thanks

    Re: reason

    Welcome to the forum, yasijam.

    How do you know there is a problem with it? Did your teacher tell you? What do you think it might be?

    Re: reason

    Yes my teacher did. He said it shoud not be "the reason of that is..." and wanted me to change it. I think the problem might be the preposition for "reason" so I might need to change it to "the reason for that is...". One other guess that I take is "of that" may need to be omited so it would be "the reason is".

    Both of your suggestions work.

    The reason for that is ...
    The reason is that ...

    "The reason of​ that ..." is incorrect.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
