Owing to x Due to Could anyone help me? I have been reading some articles and "due to" is quite used, but I have never seen "owing to" be used. Is there any difference between them or "owing to" is old fashioned? Thanks a lot

Yes Sir, you answered your own question. "Owing to" is more formal than "due to" so you will only see it in a more formal context. :)

"owing to" is very old fashion and would very rarely be used. Due to would be fine you would not be criticised for it
