When you're scribbling a note with a pencil, do you ever wonder what this handy tool is made from? To get right to the point, a pencil is made of a number of materials. The inside is made of graphite that is reinforced with clay. Its wooden outside comes from cedar trees. The yellow paint on the wood is made from minerals, while the metal band at one end is aluminum. Should you make a mistake while writing,use the eraser. Its main materials are soybean oil and latex.
I have to find 6 details from the passage that tells about the topic.
1. Made of graphite with clay
2. The yellow paint on wood is made from materials
3. Metal band is aluminum
4. Main materials are soybean oil and latex
5. Made of a number of materials
6. Wooden part comes from cedar trees
Is this correct?
You need more details for 2 and 5.
I meant to put on number 2 minerals not materials.
Would that still be wrong?
Minerals is correct for # 2.
I cant find any other details to replace number 5.
You could say
A pencil is made of a number of materials.
Also -- you need to tell what part of the pencil is made of soy bean oil and latex (# 4).
