    Thank you so much for the post Ms. Sue! Can you check the answer for me??? Thnak you! Here is what I guess:

    An office building: capital
    An assembly line worker: labor
    A tree used to make paper: capital
    Unused soil: land
    An artist: labor
    A student: labor

    They're all right.

    I'm not sure, however, that a student belongs in any group of production factors.

    I would put the tree into land. But this is certainly debatable.

    A paper company that specifically planted the tree with the intent to use the wood to make paper might very well call the tree a piece of capital.
