Types of Spectra Venn Diagram

Given a Venn diagram of spectra (continuous, emission, and absorption overlapping), the student is asked to determine where in the diagram various kinds of spectra would be located (some/all wavelengths present, produced by chromosphere/Stefan-Boltzmann law/Kirchoff's laws/a hot, dense gas/typical stars).
