What is related to the leading known cause of mental retardation?
a. substance abuse
b. chromosomal abnormalities
c. iatrogenic reasons
d. autoimmune disease
e. infections


I guess it is substance abuse (Fetal alcohol syndrome).


Yes, it is the leading known cause. Down Syndrome is second.




Yes, Substance abuse is the answer.

Fetal alcohol syndrome is the most common cause and Down and Fragile X Syndromes are most common genetic causes.
