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
