    Real account which represents assets & Investments.

    Nominal account which represents Expenses,Losses,Income & Gain.

    Personal account represents individuals, firms, companies.


    Drawings represents amount taken out by the owners of the company. From the angle of the company, it is an asset of the company as this amount could be recovered from the 'debtor'.

    So, this is a real account.


    Capital represents the amount due to the owners by the company. A 'liability' but we usually called it capital. So, this is a real account.
