a. He cried in joy.
b. He cried from joy.
c. Both.
d. None.
I know that 'cry with joy' and 'cry for joy' are in use but what about the examples above?

    @umaraman96 - You could say either, but "He cried for joy" is the more natural way of saying someone cried because they were happy.

    Tears came into his eyes can be from sorrow or from happiness. I've sometimes laughed at something so much that tears came into my eyes.
