    从严格的语法学角度上讲,due是个形容词,不能用作介词。这都是过时的语法规则了

    That book is a bit advanced, but the content is correct.
    . a, U- r( S) Q1 y3 z3 Y/ xTraditionally due to should be restricted to adjectival use; hence, it should usually be followed with a to be verb. In that sense due means attributable. 6 f& [/ t' `8 u4 z7 c
    ' X" k/ b0 g+ U  a; s0 w+ h7 }
    - due to modifies a noun (you will probably need a to be verb for it)
    1 Q) t. |5 _  Q2 m- because of modifies a verb (you have already a verb in the sentence for it)

    Generally speaking, you will learn that it is better to write actively and avoid to be verbs.
    % n! H8 m. K& X; q6 P" B% c7 fAlthough the language is changing and due to is widely used instead of because of, owing to, and caused by, I think it's easier to just avoid due to.

    Both above sentences are correct, but you better practice using the second one.
