You must be able to justify which reason you have picked as the most important. Write down your order of importance in your books. Write down your most important reason and explain why you chose it.

    HLong Term cause: Something that builds up over a long period of timeShort Term cause: Something that builds up over a short period of timeTrigger: The last straw
