Material expenditure production here means capital in the form of material and non-material materil. Material materials are like money, while non-production materials material is in the form of other than money such as energy and means of transportation.

The answer lies in the paradigm of thinking teenagers themselves. This is where the practice comes in. real from the reference of thinking a teenager in controlling everything that became his top priority.
