instead of a causality.
"Although" indicates that something happened
in spite of something else.
Choice (C) is incorrect for the same reason. Like "although," the word "while"
sets up a contrast. It would be correct if the sentence were something more like, "While
I didn't know anything about kitty-bathing, I took a shot at it anyway," but that's
not the case here.
(D) makes the same mistake as its predecessors. The phrase "regardless of the fact" indicates
a contrast as well. We might say, "Regardless of the fact that I love you, I can't marry
you because of that thing on your face."
But then we'd be jerks.
This leaves us with choice (B), the correct answer. The word "since" is used to show
when one thing is caused by another. Boom. There's the causality we've been looking for.
Seems like this causality came close to causing a casualty.
