Resources used in homes:

a. Natural resources:

ii. Air: Air is another bare necessity of life. All creatures need Oxygen to survive on this planet. Without it, there would be no sign of life on Earth.

iii. Mineral like salt and sugar: Salt and sugar is basically used in our kitchens to enhance the taste of our food.
