    in that vs for

    The Olympic games helped to keep peace among the pugnacious states of the Greek world in that a sacred truce was procalimed during the festival's month.

    A. world in that a sacred truce was procalimed during the festival's month

    B. world, proclaiming a sacred truce during the festival's month

    C. world, for a sacred truce was proclaimed during the month of the festival.

    the correct answer is C. I am not understanding the logic behind it. Can you please explain why C is correct?

    Also A, if possible? I understood A somewhat but i would want to hear from experts so that I will not have any doubts.. Thanks!:)

    In C, "for" means the same as "because".
