Good day Dears,
Please i really need your help on this 2 phenomena i.e. Common cause & Special cause.
Even from the Wikipedia where i saw alot of attempted comparison and rather similar examples to each other, i still do not understand the plain concept of the 2.
I would be most grateful your kind revert with any layman explanation for me. Thanks alot and do have a fulfilled day meanwhile.

Here is a website link that I believe has a very good description of the differences between the two causes of variance. Hope it helps.
