Could someone help me to distinguish the followings, with examples?

1. Given

2. Since

3. Because

A. I suggest him take the package since he wants to have everything.

B. I suggest him take the package given that he wants to have everything.

Many thanks,

S.

Your sentences are wrong. A that clause with the present subjunctive or should + infinitive should be used after suggest: I suggest that he take / he should take the package since/because/as he wants to have everything.

The above three causal conjunctions are possible in your sentence. English has very few verb forms and therefore the present subjunctive and the plain present active infinitive are identical in form. Given is wrong in your sentence.

Hi, CB

Could you please explain what you're saying here please? First you are talking about causal conjunctions, then move on to this. I may need another cup of coffee. Emotion: smile

I don't think I can say it more clearly than I have. My apologies if you don't understand. "Identical in form" means that there is no differencein form in the blue and red take in my previous reply.

The causal conjunctions (because/since/as) all indicate the reason why something happens or is done: I took an umbrella because/since/as it was raining. Usually any one of them can be used for this purpose.

Ah, I see. I was just unsure what you were referring to. I thought you were talking about the elements in topic sentence, not your versions. Thanks for clarifying.
My advice is to use only 'because'. 'Since' and 'given' have other meanings so some readers may get confused. 'Given' is more difficult to use correctly. As a preposition, 'given' means 'considering that we know'.

I suggest that he take the package.

The package contains everything? That seems strange. Maybe you should change it to "the whole package" and "all of it". There is seldom any difference between want something and want to have something. You can omit to have.

I would use 'given that'.

I suggest that he take the whole package given that he wants all of it.
