    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

    4 c8 G2 J4 {9 d6 r: O5 a' ^That book is a bit advanced, but the content is correct.
    * q4 p) x8 |' ^: kTraditionally 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.
    , c; R% K# r+ P# A3 h5 H8 U; e+ @5 n" _2 d8 O1 h
    - due to modifies a noun (you will probably need a to be verb for it)
    ; V1 x$ \9 H5 B) H& M2 t" j- because of modifies a verb (you have already a verb in the sentence for it)8 }- }" i8 Y( i4 w; Q

    Generally speaking, you will learn that it is better to write actively and avoid to be verbs.$ B- w1 S, h8 a8 q& P, Y% R
    Although 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.
    : }3 c6 H2 j3 Y& S2 I* ?4 \' z8 K9 p* m8 E6 t
    - My success in the exam was due to my diligence.
    / T( r% ?, p: V. r- I passed the exam because of my diligence.5 V, ]1 `8 ?, r& \- Z. l8 D
    * b/ o# S8 ~$ |, h5 I
    Both above sentences are correct, but you better practice using the second one.
