Why did the Great Compromise and the Three-Fifths Compromise involve so much debate and discussion?

The states were not ready to give up all of their independence.
The states believed the Articles of Confederation were adequate.
Each state was looking out for its personal interests and needs.
Each state was certain that cooperation would lead to mutiny.

Answer

I would believe the answer would be, "Each state was looking out for its personal interests and needs."
The Great Compromise established the system of representation in the House of Representatives and the Senate, and each state was worried about being under-represented in either group.
The Three-Fifths Compromise dealt with the counting of slaves as people while counting up the populations of states, so this connected with the representation issue.
The other answer choices don't really make sense with those details.
