  7. Well, some natural resources are: "air, water, wood, oil, wind energy, hydro-electric energy, iron, and coal". ~Wiki-pedia

    ^ This has several of the resources said above in the answer selection above.

    With the question, what do they want for a resource? A renewable resource, or a nonrenewable resource?

    With Ms. Sue's comment about we don't need to "conserve (save) either sun or wind", it leaves A or C as possible answers. However, when you burn something, it doesn't really conserve that resource, so I don't think A is the answer.

    So, I have to go with C as the answer. Also, when you think about it, have you ever heard that turning off lights when not in use, conserves energy(or electricity) as well?

    I hope this helps! :)

    P.S. Sorry about me not being on to help, my mind was distracted with my own schoolwork.

  17. Oh, okay. That solves most of my confusion.

    Also, I have to go now, because my mom says to log off. So I am really sorry. My Thanksgiving week long(plus some extra days) break is going to start when I log off. My mom says I am going to be busy throughout the entire break, so I believe I may not be able to come onto here. I will probably help you more in December.
