Which of the following ideas is essential to determinism?

(a) People who try harder are more successful.

(b) People choose their behaviors by free will.

(c) Most differences in behavior are under genetic control.

(d) Every behavior has a cause.


Determinism defines that every event, behavior, and any other moral choices which individuals make in their life are always be motivated by some other predetermined or earlier causes means there is no free will and individuals exist with some causes which help them to do particular actions. Similarly, individuals behavior are influenced by some faiths, beliefs, and/or other ideals which help them to feel motivated about particular behavior and then they adopt such properties within their behavior. So, individuals behavior too exist with some causes which could be individuals rooted beliefs, faiths, learning, ideas, etc. but there is always some causes which influence individuals to live with particular behavioral characteristics or properties. Therefore, option d is correct.



(d) Every behavior has a cause.

Because determinism defines that there is always causes for having any causes means each kind of cause or behavior exist because of some predetermined or existing causes which help to create other causes means behavior is too exist by some causes like; individuals behavior determines by their rooted beliefs, faiths, values, learning, etc which help them to build their behavior so causes exist for behavior. Therefore, option (d) is correct.
