A question in Campbell's 8th edition study guide for AP Biology says:

A multifactorial disorder _.

Answer: has a collection of symptoms traceable to an epistatic gene.

There is another answer choice which says : has both genetic and environmental causes.

Shouldn't the answer be the latter? It says the definition of multifactorial is a combination of genetic and environmental factors affect phenotype.
