    The point is "that", because the sentence after the blank space is "David has worked in such countries ...". This sentence is a clause, hence it needs "that" to lead this sentence. You can still use (B), but you need to replace "for" with "that", then you can use (B) also.

    On the other hand, since "David has worked in such countries ..." is a "fact", not a "reason". therefore, if both has "that" at the end, it is still better to use "the fact that", not "the reason that".

    for 是介詞,David是主詞,單憑這點就不能選B;看這裡。

    這是華語和英語上的思想差異造成的。

    華人認為有多國工作的經驗是「理由」。而英人認為這是「事實」。關於這些思想差異,也可說是文化差異,往往是學外語的障礙,只好見一個記一個。但寫中文時就用中式思想,寫英文時就改用英式思想。不要混用,混用反而變差。
