- Do you usually use pen and pencil?
I sometimes use pen and pencil, but not as often as I used to. Nowadays it is becoming for more convenient to take notes on electronic devices such as tablets and light-weight laptops. However, if I am just making a quick note, or for example a shopping list, then I will normally write this down with a pencil or a pen.
- Which do you use more often? Pen or pencil? I definitely use pens far more often than I use pencils. I only really use either if I am going to make a quick note or a list; and for this purpose I think pens are far superior. Pens are both clearer and also permanent （持久的） which means that the notes I take are more legible （容易辨认的） and there is no risk they shall fade away.
- When was the last time you bought a pen or pencil?
I bought a pen quite recently as I suddenly needed one while I was out in town and did not have any on my person. Luckily, supermarkets sell a decent range of cheap pens nowadays, so I was able to buy one vey conveniently.
- What do you think if someone gives you a pen or pencil as a present?
It can be very nice to receive a pen or pencil as a gift and fbr a variety of reasons. For one, they are very useful items and therefore are much more practical than other gifts such as flowers. Furthermore, certain pens can be very precious and expensive which are thus very kind and generous gifts to receive.
