Answers

1. I was tired so I took some rest.

2. She wanted to score good marks so she studied hard.

3. I was late so I missed the bus.

4. It was raining so I opened my umbrella. (So shows the effect of the action mentioned in the first sentence.)

6. I was frightened but I was curious.

7. I consulted a doctor because I was not feeling well. (Because indicates the reason.)

8. I went to the library and borrowed some books.

Notes

The conjunctions so and because are often confused. So shows the effect; because gives the reason.

  • I was hungry so I ate an apple. (Here so shows the effect of the action mentioned in the first clause.)

The same idea can be expressed using because.

  • I ate an apple because I was hungry.
  • She performed well in the interview so she got the job.
  • She got the job because she performed well in the interview.
