can somebody try to explain the main difference between these 2? I often get myself confused whenever I face answer choices that differentiate between "because" and "in that." I'd like to end this issue once and for all. anyone? which one is used for what?
thanks

Ive read in the orange OG that the use of "in that" has largely gone out of use.

Im not sure if GMAT considers the use of in that valid or not.

From what I have gathered...

Because - is the best way to say because and it is more appropriate and well constructed when used in between the sentence.

It can be a sentence beginner if it is the subject.

And it is no way to start a noun clause

in that - can be a sentence beginner..
and it acts both as 'adverb' & as 'conjunction'

Because is used to show a causal relationship.

In that is used to qualify a previous part of the sentence.

Both are correct depending on their use.
