Is not because… but because an idiom or can because be omitted?
Guitarist Jimi Hendrix and Robert Fripp shook left hands when they first met not because both were left handed but (Hendrix had his right arm) in a sling.
a) same
b) Hendrix’s right arm was
d)because Hendrix’s right arm was

thank you!

Yeah, you definitely want to follow “not because” with “but because.”
