    Re: why and because

    In simple terms:

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

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

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


    -- 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!
