連接詞 because&for

Mary must be sick, _____ she is absent today. (1) because (2) still (3)  for (4) but答案為3,為什麼選項1不行呢?我想此句應該是想表達「因為她今天缺席,(我猜測)她一定是生病了。」(謝謝回答的朋友們,真是太感謝了^^)

Update:

Mary must be sick, _____ she is absent today. 這句是推測「Mary必定是病了,因為...」,加上for表示「附加理由或推測的理由」。

不能用because是因為because表直接的理由。

舉例:

(X) Mary must be sick because she is absent today. (因果關係不對)

(O) Mary must be sick, for she is absent today.(表推斷)

(O) Mary is absent today because she is sick. (表直接理由)

    for

    【文】 因為;由於…的緣故 ( 用來說明理由,一般不用於句首 )

    《例句》

    * It will rain, for the barometer is falling. 要下雨了,因為晴雨表在下降.

    because

    因為 ( ( 引述副詞子句,表示直接原因,回答 why ) )

    《例句》

    * I was absent because I was ill. 我因病缺席.

    其實原因是那個小小的逗號

    Mary must be sick, for she is absent today.

    = Mary must be sick because she is absent today. (沒有逗號就用because)

    for 是對等連接詞 連接兩個獨立子句

    because 是附屬連接詞 引導副詞子句 (附屬子句)

    差別在這

    because = for the reason that

    for = and the reason is that

    看出來了嗎?在此用 because 並不符合文意。

    這句話應該是Mary must be sick because she's absent today.

    那ㄍ逗點是不需要ㄉ.

    可以用for只是句子要改一下

    像降 Mary is absent for being sick today.

    意思是她今天一定是生病才缺席
