    Welcome to the forum.

    The phrase doesn't make any sense to me.

    Please see my amendments in red. Remember we always capitalise the word "I". One question mark/exclamation mark is enough.

    Also please make your titles more relevant. Your username does not give us any idea what the subject of your post is. A good title would have been "Nature is wearing down nurture".

    It doesn't any sense for me either.
    But I'm doing my homework and the text says:

    "But right now nature is wearing down nurture. Equality is had work"

    Re: juli garcia

    A classic question of life is whether the way a person is is a result of their genes or their upbringing. If you had identical twins born and one was sent to live with a rich family and one sent to live in poverty, how would these twins differ in their choices, morals, behaviors, character after 20 years?

    The question is one of "nature" (genetic components) versus "nurture" (the affects of the upbringing and environment).

    Whatever your homework is talking about, it is saying that the "nature" part of the equation is right now outweighing the nurture part.
