    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

    Traditionally 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.
    . L4 w7 ^' u7 X, B
    ) o, Z  E! c' P2 T- due to modifies a noun (you will probably need a to be verb for it)
    7 M$ t8 o% i& k. d3 O' x( R1 V- because of modifies a verb (you have already a verb in the sentence for it)
    $ \2 R9 I( u6 b: E2 M9 z3 S) c6 l) m, o' }7 C! y" u' ~
    Generally speaking, you will learn that it is better to write actively and avoid to be verbs.
    * n6 B. y7 k# lAlthough 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.
    8 P" K6 }* S* \( g. s5 K2 s7 ~: }1 G# `; @" o5 r
    - My success in the exam was due to my diligence.
    5 g  z7 Y9 `( s4 _9 K! Q) n- I passed the exam because of my diligence., ?- i! I# s  ~2 c) e$ m

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