    Re: why and because

    In simple terms:

    "WHY" is used to ask a question concerning the cause or reason for which something is done.

    Eg:
    Why did you leave so early?
    Why did she cry?

    "BECAUSE" answers the question to "WHY". Because means "due to".

    Eg:

    -- I left early because I was getting late.
    --She cried because she was sad.

    Why- can also be used as an exclamation of surprise.
    Eg: Why, Its not here now!
