    What do you think?
    And please check the correct spelling of "werent".
    Also, (looking at the title of your thread) remember to start every sentence with a capital letter, and end it with a full stop.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Re: how to use 'reason of something' 'reason of that'

    I think that all of them seem correct but I am not sure. I looked up the dictionary and saw some patterns like 'reason of arrest, reason of issue etc.' In this examples there is 'of' in the middle. I want to learn that if I want to say a sentence after 'reason' will i say reason of or reason that?

    What do you think about the reason of you weren't accepted for this job? or What do you think about the reason that you weren't accepted for this job?
