「Verb[て] + B」の情報

One of the functions that the conjunction particle performs in Japanese is very similar to 'since', or 'due to', in English. Phrases that use this particular (A) (B) nuance of the て-form primarily express something that is beyond the control of the speaker in the (B) statement.
To use this grammar construction, pair the て-form of a verb or い-Adjective with the (B) phrase. In the case of nouns and な-Adjectives, (the particle) will be used instead.
  • 犯人(はんにん)(つか)まっ安心(あんしん)です

  • 今日(きょう)宿題(しゅくだい)(おお)()けなかった。
    I couldn't go today because I had a lot of homework.
  • 田舎(いなか)(しず)なので()()ます
    I can relax in the countryside because it is quiet.
  • 虫歯(むしば)()(いた)
    My tooth hurts because of a cavity.
Fun Fact
The 'because' nuance of (or ) in this grammar construction is primarily influenced by the (B) phrase being something that is uncontrollable, rather than being a different meaning of the particles , or themselves. Literally the meaning is closer to the following:
(A) て (こま)る - Being troubled cannot be controlled, so (A) must have caused it.
(A) て (うれ)しい - Being happy cannot be controlled, so (A) must have caused it.
(A) て 大変(たいへん) - Having a problem cannot be controlled, so (A) must have caused it.
(A) て びっくり - Being surprised cannot be controlled, so (A) must have caused it.
(A) て (つか)れている - Being worn-out cannot be controlled, so (A) must have caused it.
(A) て 心配(しんぱい) - Feeling anxiety cannot be controlled, so (A) must have caused it.
Many other words, such as the ones listed above will cause (or ) to have a similar nuance. てすみません also uses this meaning of , as すみません is a feeling that the speaker cannot control, relating to the situation being left unfinished.

    Thank you for the response. I think I sort of understand but I want to make sure I’m really getting it. I’m not sure I understand what the difference is between “because it’s raining” vs “due to the rain”. I think my understanding now is that ので should be working on full sentences but the particle で by itself can be used to add context to the verb within the sentence?

    I don’t think there is a big difference in meaning. That’s why bunpro will not mark you wrong if you enter なので. It just asks for a different answer because it wants to make sure you remember this grammar point, and not just any way to say “because”.

    In example " 先週、インフルエンザに___、仕事を休んだのです。", the verb to be conjugated is “かかる”. The hint says that it’s ichidan verb. However, the correct answer is かかって, not かかて. According to jisho, it is a godan verb, so it appears that the hint is wrong. Is that right?
