The reason why the winged bean can thrive on poor soil is because their roots house bacteria that can turn atmospheric nitrogen into fertilizer.


(A) is because their roots house bacteria that can turn
(B) is because its roots house bacteria which can turn
(C) is that their roots house bacteria turning
(D) is that its roots house bacteria that can turn
(E) being that its roots house bacteria and can turn

Strugging between (B) and (D).
Its it necessary that the word which should always be preceded by a ','
(D) then seems to be more appropiate.

"Because" in the options A and B is redundant, since the sentence starts with "The reason". For example - "The reason for X is because Y.... " sounds incorrect. The correct form would be rather "The reason for X is Y". So, A and B are out.

C is out for using "their"

Out of D and E, I'll choose D which is precise and clear.

Can someone explain more in detail

IMO B

In D - 'that' is redundant before 'its root house bacteria'.
Reason is that - I think require phrase and not just noun.

i think why and because.. also corresponds in B

Opinions please!

Between B and D, D IMO. ''The reason why sth happens is that..." not 'because'
