B) Multifactorial

Because there are both genetic and environmental factors, I would say it is multifactorial.

Arrow B) Multifactorial disorder

Very good...

The correct ans is B) Multifactorial disorder

Many common diseases are caused by a combination of environmental and genetic factors, and are described as multifactorial diseases. Examples include diabetes mellitus, schizophrenia, alcoholism, scleroderma and many common birth defects such as cleft palate or congenital dislocation of the hip.
