Is my rendering of this question understandable? What is the reason for the repetition of 'Cxu"? It is a single question, requiring a single answer, after all.

We can't see your rendering of the question. Just a reminder :)

It's really two questions linked by the conjunction "or". I think that it sounds best with both cxus but is understandable with just the first.

I think it should have both.

Omitting the second sounds a bit as if you asked, "Does literature create culture, or culture create literature?", omitting the second "does". Understandable, I suppose, but sounds rather odd.

Why doesn't "kulturo" also require the article "la", as well as "literaturo"?
