Hello, Crista, welcome to the Forum!

I am glad you have decided to give us a try. You should know, first of all, that this is indeed a learning forum, so we are definitely here to help you. However, it is the policy of the forum not to "do" the homework for its members, but rather help correct your own attempts. So before we can help you, you need to at least try.

There is a very nice translator tool available right on this site, that can be a good starting point if you are at a complete loss.

Having said that, it is not easy to give you an answer anyway, because we have no idea what is supposed to go in the blanks. It is apparently asking something about what pencils are made of. That should be enough of a hint to get you started!

And finally, for the same reason that this is a learning forum, you must use proper capitalization, spelling and punctuation on your posts.

Thank you, and once more, welcome!

i was not asking you to fill in the blank i just wanted to know what it said so i could answer the blank - 00c34555, MAY 13, 2010

Hola, Christa.

Have you tried putting the sentence into the translation tool? It will give you a good translation, and then you will understand what to answer in the blank.

Bienvenida al foro.
