    cae question

    here comes the text:

    ........based on the theory that we are born with natural predisposition to one personality type that stays more or less fixed throughout the life.

    now, does the theory say that:

    a. character traits are largely inherited
    b. character is largely decided from birth

    people who know english idiom better help! I would go for b because is more general but......It comes from CAE preparation book.

    Since the argument is that "you are born with a natural predisposition", I would have to go with #A, since the predisposition is already within you.

    I agree; if you're born with something, it existed before birth, while B) uses 'from'.
