The U.S. Mint produced 1.5 million pennies made from aluminum in 1974 --- but never used any of them.

Several U.S. clothing companies made socks from corn!

"Sensitive Tooth!" The 8-foot-long tooth of the narwhal contains as many as 10 million nerve connections!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) How many people used pennies made from aluminum?

(2) From what do the U.S. clothing companies make socks?

(3) Is the 8-foot-long tooth of the narwhal sensitive?
