chamad the other answers are not wrong but C is most appropriate!
rocyang still, c doesn't refer to the "long-lived" part
Jurrens "not bought with the intention of resale" relates to the long-lived part, seeing that the company keeps the asset for its entire useful life
2014 Investments in subsidiaries may support to the company and hence ... long lived
bidisha more likely than not its the longer answer for descriptive q's
Ewan2015 C is not correct a resource could meet the definition of C and not be a long lived asset if it is consumed within a year or a business cycle. For example prepayment of IT services for the year would be an asset and meet the above definition at C but would not be a long lived asset as it is a current asset.
