Only about 50 people in the world are known to have congenital hypertrichosis --- a genetic disease causing excessive hair growth!

The first orange carrot was bred by Dutch farmers to honor their royal family, the House of Orange. Prior to that, most carrots were purple, yellow and white!

Seahorses and their kin are among the only animals in the world in which the male gets pregnant!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) How many people are known to have congenital hypertrichosis in the world?

(2) What colors were most carrots before orange ones were bred?

(3) Do the male seahorses get pregnant?
