What are the components for water potential?

I have to write a response to this question. Is the question asking me about the properties of water or subjects as osmosis, active, passive and pressure? I am not sure what the question actually mean.

Please explain.

Wouldn't it make more sense to ask the person who assigned the problem?

actually it is a simple equation that tells you what makes up water potential. look it up.
