Our trip to Australia will be very long due that it will take 14 hours to arrive there by plane.

a) due that it will take
b) as it could possibly be taking
c) since it takes
d) for it to take
e) that it will take

Can anyone please explain why E is not correct. I was stuck between E and C.

C provides a perfect causal relation & proper use of tense therein.
In E , that tries to modify 'long' - does not make sense. Causal relationship is generally expressed by 'so.... that' form( if we use 'that').

Due, as adjective, can mean two things: Result or Expectation.
Expectation: The semester fee is due in January.
Result: Tom's illness is due to lack of regular exercise.

In this case, the intended meaning is to show result. Hence, the correct preposition is 'to'.

a) due that it will take
b) as it could possibly be taking
c) since it takes
d) for it to take (Please note that for it takes would be correct)
e) that it will take

Answer will be option be as it has got proper usage of tenses. One might think of option E but usage of 'that' is incorrect.
