I have a question that asks to pick one of the three theories: classism, positivism or sociological theories to explain why, for example, burglaries are committed. I've gone through the theories and don't understand how to link one of these theories to explain someone's actions. Can anyone help? I'd appreciate any answers, just need to understand the question properly. Thank you
