PET - SO and BECAUSE
BECAUSE is used to explain why an action is done.
- He ate the cake.
- Why did he eat the cake? - BECAUSE he was hungry.
SO is used to explain the consequence of a situation.
- He was hungry - SO he ate the cake.
BECAUSE and SO are related because CAUSE and CONSEQUENCE are related.
This means a sentence using BECAUSE can be transformed into a sentence using SO, and a sentence using SO can be transformed into a sentence using BECAUSE.
