Nature vs Nurture

Answer the questions according to the reading passage.

People have wondered for a long time how their personalities and behaviors are formed. Two distinct schools of thought on he matter have developed. The two approaches are very different from one another, The controversy is often referred to as nature and nurture, Those who support the nature side of the conflict believe that our personalities and behavior patterns are largely determined by biological and genetic factors. That our environment has little to do with our abilities, characteristics, and behavior is central to this theory. Proponents of the nurture theory claim that our environment is more important than our biologically based instinct in determining how we will act. They see humans as beings whose behavior is almost completely shaped by their surroundings. Neither of these theories can yet fully explain human behavior. In fact, it is quite likely that the key to our behavior lies somewhere between these two extremes. That the controversy will continue for a long time is certain.
