Are there any mistakes?

Thanks to does technically sound correct, however we only say "thanks to" in regards to positive things.

"The queen is loved thanks to her kind nature."

"Due to" is usually associated with more negative things, although it is interchangeable and can be used in regards to positive things too.

I'd stick to using "thanks to" for positive outcomes, though! :-)

I meant "due"! "Due to" would be both words put together - the answer is still "due"

1. Correct

2. Due to

3. Correct

4. Had

The rest are correct!

Oh! You're right! My mistake.

Despite that, is it too informal to say "The theatre was closed last night thanks to a fire alert"? Or it could be a right answer too?
