Short Note

What will happen if....? And why?

A knife is made of wood.

Advertisements

Solution

The knife is used to cut vegetables, fruits, etc. The regular knives which we use are made up of metals like iron etc. as they are hard, strong, and durable. Also, they can be sharpened and moulded into shapes that we desire. Knifes made out of wood cannot be used for cutting or chopping purposes.
