A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of pencil.
Both Google and Wikipedia provide a detailed definition of what a pencil means. Google defines it to be “an instrument for writing or drawing, consisting of a thin stick of graphite or a similar substance enclosed in a long thin piece of wood or fixed in a cylindrical case.”
Wikipedia, on the other hand, defines the term ‘pencil’ to be “a writing or drawing implement with a solid pigment core in a protective casing that reduces the risk of core breakage and keeps it from marking the user’s hand. Pencils create marks by physical abrasion, leaving a trail of solid core material that adheres to a sheet of paper or other surfaces.”
Simply put, what these meanings say in a roundabout fashion is that a pencil is a graphite object used to write and draw!
Pen might advent now but pencils ruled from before!
