node..is level 3grammar point.its not a part in level 4
But you cannot replace 'node' with 'karaniha'. Please see [kara].
You can use "because," too.
i changed that ex slightly. reason "and" result doesnt really express causality. reason "and so" result is better
ex #483 - Can 'node' also mean 'Since' in this context? "He shoplifted goods in a supermarket yesterday since he was hard up for money."
node is almost a connector between phrases, whereas karaniha is much stronger.
This is one of the weaker 'because' words, if you see what I mean.
In other words, the causal relationship isn't always spelled out in obvious terms in translations of sentences with 'node', hence the 'and' option.
