    This is a little hard to understand I wanted to know who made the first mechanical pencil,which is one of the most inportant infomation. I do not think you spared that infomation. If you did that just says that you didn't do a good job wording the paragragh. Remember adults aren't the olny ones who need information so make it easey to understand,for all to read.
