He has two sorts of behavioral theory that are controlled in different ways. The first theory is called Respondent Behaviors that are elicited by stimuli and they might be modified through the respondent conditioning. The second theory is Operant Behaviors that are in contrast that means initially from particular stimulus. Operant conditioning has strength and sometimes the occurrence response has to yield a reinforce. The Respondents Behaviors has to be measured by their latency experimentally. The main idea of the behavior has it strengthened and weakness by its consequences that raises some of the questions. One of the questions that Skinner has to answer how the Operant responses strengthen the reinforcement, and where do they come from? The answer is that origin of the new body has structure that the name variation and selection. The behavior of an individual that varies from moment to moment that is followed from reinforcement that has the strength and becomes a prominent that the individuals of behavioral repertoire. His term of the gradual modification of behavior that the reinforcement of the desired of variations. The second question that is how is operant behavior that’s controlled? The arises because it has to begin with the behavior that is emitted without reference to any particular stimulus. The question is saying that the stimulus has to come in control an operant that we present when the response that reinforced and has absent. Skinner has summarized the relationship of the discriminative
