Note:

Did you ever notice what the difference between Because Of and Due to? This seems to be one of the most common mistakes committed by many people.

 

Answer:
Because Of is an adverb.
For example:
+ Because of the rain, we couldn't play tennis yesterday.
+ He failed the exam because of his carelessness.
+ Because of the late arrival of the train, I missed my exam.

Due To is an adjective. Due To is often followed by a noun/noun phrase.
For example:
+ His absence in class was due to the rain.
+ His success was all due to his hard work during the semester.

In informal speech, we might encounter such improper usage as:
+ His absence was because of the late arrival of the train.
+ He came late due to the heavy rain.
