    Which is why / That is why..?

    1. Which is why they drive Fords in Ohio.

    2. That is why they drive Fords in Ohio.

    3. Which is because I got up late.

    4. That is because I got up late.


    I came across the 1st sentence today, which I hadn't seen before, and wonder 1 and 3 are same as 2 and 4 in meaning.

    Re: Which is why / That is why..?

    The first is not a sentence but is a dependent clause looking for some words to hang with so it can become part of a sentence. Number three is similar. Numbers two and four are fine as sentences, but we are missing some critical information. (Why do they drive Fords in Ohio?) I can imagine number four being something like:

    I was late for work today. That is because I got up late.

    Did I answer your question?
