  1. Repko notes that a single disciplinary perspective of a complex problem is often incomplete. Why does he think this is the case?a.Because disciplines are incredibly complicated to understand and as such complete understanding of any single complex problem can be hard to achieveb.Because individual disciplines lack the tools, history, and methods for looking at large, complex problems like global warming, structural racism, and gender bias

    c.Because people who practice disciplines tend to look at problems only through the lens of their own discipline’s perspective; other disciplinary perspectives may be needed for a fuller understanding of a complex problemd.The reading does not deal with the issue of disciplinary perspectives in relation to complex problems
