The correct answer is option D - material and non-material culture.
Culture can be simply defined as the way of life within a community or social group. Culture moves from one generation to another, and it is also the social heritage of man.

Culture can be renewed when there is light to a new experience. The laws, traditions, customs, food, dressing, language, music, dance, celebration, and sport, are part of the elements that make up to form a culture.

Material culture refers to the physical objects that define a culture. Examples are the homes, churches, mosques, temples, technology, goods, and products.

Non-material culture is the non-physical object that defines a culture. Examples are laws, customs, values, religion, language, beliefs, ethics, behaviors, thought, celebrations, and feelings.

The correct answer to this question is D, Material culture and Non-Material culture. When one refers to "material things", the things they are speaking of are a part of the material culture. This culture are objects and spaces that are a defined part of culture. A major example we have today is technology, which is vital to all of our lives. Whether for work or leisure, we rely on technology and it is important to our culture.

Examples include homes, offices, churches, and temples. Non-material are non-physical ideas about a culture. This includes ideas, beliefs, morals, languages, and organizations. Religion is a common example of non-material culture.
