Dora has recently started working on a research study that hypothesizes that people who have a defect in a specific gene may have a predisposition to depression. As a second hypothesis in the study, the researcher is studying the impact of a significant lack of social support in triggering the onset of depression in such people. If Dora’s research successfully validates both hypotheses, which of the following conclusion may be drawn?

    A defect in the gene Dora is studying is directly linked to depression. A lack of social support always leads to clinically significant levels of depression. The defective gene and lack of social support produce a heightened risk of depression. The defective is recessive and depression is a result of polygenic inheritance.
