I have the following task: "Draw a PPF graph with consumption goods and production goods on the two axes. Mark a point on the PPF where there are a lot of consumption goods and few production goods, and label it A. Mark a point on the PPF where there are few consumption goods and a lot of production goods, and label it B." I am not exactly sure what the PPF curve would look like. I think that I might be overanalyzing it and I just need to plot a typical PPF curve. However, don't you need production goods to make consumption goods? This throws me off, so I am not sure what the graph would look like. Any help?
