For many, both answers are acceptable nowadays, Fandorin.

Hi! Anybody can help me?

I don't get it why on number 5 we use "due to". It seems weird to me when if we say "The traffic jam is due to to major roadworks." I never seen "to" and "to" together.

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hi,
It's just a slight error in how the choices are set up. The phrase is just 'due to to'.
