Your problem is that this isn't really a standard formal logic question! The stimulus in is this one is a beast, but if you break it down slowly, you actually are rewarded with 4 pretty bad answer choices, and one answer choice which should have been similar to your prephrase.

I don't recommend diagramming this one since the conditional relationships are hard to decipher, and it's not even necessary to tackle the answer choices.

The key here is we are ONLY concerned about innate disposition and social conditioning.

A-D are all out of scope.

Isn't the answer D ? And by D it shows the flaw-- that it is not really a one-or-the-other decision (as the conclusion asserts). D says, "hey, it can be a little of both." The stim failed to consider that...
