habit of reading the daily newspapers <due to the
comic strips being appealing.>

(A) due to the comic strips being appealing
(B) because of the appeal of the comic strips
(C) for the fact of the comic stripsтАЩ appeal
(D) as a result of the comic strips having appeal
(E) since the comic strips were appealing

the answer is B, I know, but I couldn't find much explanation to restore my understanding on this. ... one can single out the answer..I need some more generalization on the usage of because and since......

thanks in anticipation

since can mean two things


john has been sober since last fall

john has been sober since he met jennifer ( awwww...)

here ..since suggests "time" and answers the question when...


Since the army was exhausted, the king decided to let the army relax

until dawn the next day.


here since means " because"...its suggests reason...and answers the question "why"?


we need "because " in this SC...and B indeed is the best answer.

thanks
