Hi, can somebody tell which of the following sentences is correct?
A.) I didn't give you a call is because I was too rush.
B.) I didn't give you a call was because I was too rush.
Thanks in advance! :)
I must disagree with the advice above.
You can use "the reason" or you can use "because" but to use both is redundant.
With the change to "rushed" (as lotus says above), the version with "was" is fine.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
I didn't give you a call because I was too rushed.
That works. But it no longer uses the first "is" or "was" in the original sentence.

Yes, brevity is most certainly superior.

Do the sentences come to "The reason I didn't give you a call was I was too rushed." and "I didn't give you a call was because I was too rushed."?
