    Question as a result, as a result of, due to, otherwise

    - What is the difference between these expressions: As a result, As a result of, Due to?
    - Which expression show more reasoning and causing as a consequence: As a result of, Due to, or Otherwise?
    - Where is the word "Otherwise" fit into in this picture? And how does "Otherwise" show reasoning?
    - What is the relation between "As a result of" and "As a result"? is it an Antagonism?

    I want to understand these expressions to maximize my written comprehension as well as my verbal communication.

    Re: as a result, as a result of, due to, otherwise

    "As a result of" and "As a result" are two forms of the same expression. The choice depends on the grammar.
    "As a result of the heavy rain, the grass grew taller."
    "There was heavy rain. As a result, the grass grew taller".

    'Antagonism' is the wrong word. You're probably asking about 'Antonyms'. As you see, they aren't antonyms.

    Yes, you can say "Due to the heavy rain, the grass grew taller."
    I don't know why you're asking about 'otherwise'. It doesn't fit into this picture at all.
