This sequence suggests that our behavior is influenced by the collective reality of our culture, which in turn affects our sociopsychological processes.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The complexity and affluence of a culture can lead to a greater choice of ingroups and the ability for autonomy. This is often associated with Western individualism. The answer choice a-c encompasses all of these factors, suggesting that the complexity and affluence of a culture can result in a greater choice of ingroups, the ability for autonomy, and the promotion of Western individualism. It is also worth noting that individualism and Gross National Product (GNP) are not highly correlated, indicating that economic prosperity does not necessarily lead to increased individualism.
