Poll: She was absent ____ illness.
She was absent ____ illness.
umm..is the answer "either could be used" ?
ps. the first i am! yay :P
what's the correct answer to the poll?
Many grammar books say it should be "because of", but the rule is rarely followed today.
either could be used
I think,both of them can be used in the sentence, but maybe there is the accurate one.
