Both. You need basic intelligence to understand the concepts but also the effort to show that you understand the concepts. Without either you will fail. One of my best friends is really really smart but barely passed his highschool classes.

You have to have both. At times it took a lot of effort to do homework or to study. It also take a great teacher that makes you want to learn, you have got to have some desire to want to learn, and that is where teachers and parents most work together for that to happen.....
