Which of the following best describes the relationship between realism and naturalism?

Many argue that there really is no real difference, largely because of the differing definitions. Naturalism may be more interested in the lower classes, and it tends to have a more direct philosophic position.
Realism tends to focus on the "real" events in the lives of people, while naturalism tends to deal with people and their experiences in the natural world.
