What is cause in cause and effect?
Also, what does cause mean in cause and effect?
Without the alarm, you probably would have overslept. In this scenario, the alarm had the effect of you waking up at a certain time. This is what we mean by cause and effect. A cause-effect relationship is a relationship in which one event (the cause) makes another event happen (the effect).
One may also ask, what is cause and effect reasoning? When examining events, people naturally seek to explain why things happened. This search often results in cause and effect reasoning, which asserts or denies that one thing causes another, or that one thing is caused by another. The effect always happens at some point in time after the cause.
