The question is asking how important human and physical causes are in creating a flood - whether they increase the chances of flooding a lot or only slightly
Physical causes - precipitation, natural disasters, snow, impermeable rock
Human causes - urbanisation, deforestation, changing the channel characteristics e.g channel straightening
