Question: xavier is a teenager and his parents are not happy...

Question details

Xavier is a teenager and his parents are not happy with how much he helps around the house. They do a baseline, where they determine that he is cleaning is room 25% of the time and is taking the trash out 25% of the time. After two weeks of his parents keeping track of what he does, they decide to pay him for the percentage of time he does his chores, but pays him 100% for taking out the trash. They find that Xavier increases the amount of time that he does his chores, but not taking out the trash. After three weeks, he gets an allowance based on the performance of both. Xavier increases his performance on taking out the trash and keeps up the 75% of doing his chores.

Is this operant or classical conditioning?
