What are the differences between "Nature" and "Nurture"? Does one influence a human's psychology more than the other?
Nature is hereditary factors such as physical appearance (eye color, hair color, etc.) and personality traits. According to research, about 40% of personality traits come from inherited genes. Nurture, on the other hand, accounts for the environmental factors, social support networks during childhood, and experiences. In the field of psychology, both are considered to be equally important in the development of a human's psyche. Certain mental health disorders are highly heritable. However, it is often dependent upon environmental factors and experiences whether the disorders are expressed. In the end, both are equally important in the development of a person's psychology.

Write about an example of Meta-Theatre and explain how the play fits into the genre.
Our Town by Thornton Wilder is a meta-theatrical 3 act play. It is set in Grover’s Corners and covers a 12-year time span (1901-1913). The play is narrated by the stage manager of the play, which is set in the theater where it is being performed and utilizes several meta-theatrical elements. Meta-theatre draws attention to the elements of drama and the circumstances of performance. The stage manager talks directly to the audience and brings in guest lecturers, fills in for roles, and manipulates the world of the performance. Furthermore, the play is often presented without a set, sometimes just chairs and ladders. The style of meta-theatre came about in the United States due to the rise of Naturalism and Realism during the early 20th century.
