Resources it can be either natural resources or Human resources in terms of human resources it’s simply the quality and the quantity and the structure and the institution that is useful however under natural resources we talk about the resources which can be used from one generation to another so we call those as renewable resources on the other hand we have non-renewable resources which deplete.

Now non-renewable resources can further be classified as recyclable or non-recyclable, recyclable are those which can be recycle or reused again and again, so that metals non-recyclable is that would be totally depleted and cannot be used again, so you have fossil fuels under renewable resources you have either the continuous resources for example water, wind rainfall or you have the biological resources. Biological resources are further classified under as wildlife or vegetation. Now this was first basic classification now we will understand resources based on different classification.
