Reading passage

Read the following passage and answer the questions 1 to 4:

What is meant by the term economic resources ? In general, these are all the natural, man-made, and human resources that go into the production of goods and services . This obviously covers a lot of ground: factories and farms, tools and machines, transportation and communication facilities, all types of natural resources, and labor. Economic resources can be broken down into two general categories: property resources – land and capital – and human resources – labor and entrepreneurial skills.

What do economics mean by land ? Much more than the non-economist . land refers to all natural resources that are usable in the production process: arable land, forests, mineral and oil deposits, and so on. What about capital ? Capital goods are all the man-made aids to producing, storing, transporting, and distributing goods and services. Capital goods differ from consumer goods in that the latter satisfy wants directly, while the former do so indirectly by facilitating the production of consumer goods. It should be noted that capital as defined here does not refer to money. Money, as such, produces nothing.

The term labor refers to the physical and mental talents of humans used to produce goods or services (with the exception of a certain set of human talents, entrepreneurial skills, which will be considered separately because of their special significance). Thus the services of a factory worker or an office worker, a ballet dancer or an astronaut all fall under the general heading of labor.

01. What is the author’s main purpose in writing this passage?

A. To explain the concept of labor

B. To criticize certain uses of capital

C. To define economic resources

D. To define economic resources

E. To discuss the differences of opinion of economists and non-economists.

02. The word 'arable' is closest in the meaning?

A. Dry B. Fertile C. Developed D. Open E. Government land

03. The skills of the following could be considered examples of labor , as defined in the passage EXCEPT.

A. artists and scientists

B. workers who produce services, not goods

C. office workers

D. entrepreneurs

E. Factory workers

04. When non-economists use the term “land”, its definition

A. Is much more general than when economists use it

B. Is much more restrictive than when economists use it

C. Changes from place to place

D. Includes all types of natural resources

E. Changes from business to business
