Hi there,

Which one is correct, "for' or 'of'? Any difference?
What is the cause (for/ of) the fire?
What is the reason (for/of) the fire?

What is the difference between 'reason' and 'cause'?

The cause of something is what makes it happen; the reason is an explanation of it. We usually say cause of and reason for something.
