This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can find out
what is so unusual about it. *It looks so plain you would think nothing was
wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is unusual though.
Study it, and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But
if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any
coaching!

There is no presence for the letter "e" in the whole paragraph.

yes again, alfa!

Reason being 'e' is the most widely *used letter of the English alphabet and yet it's not used even once in the paragraph. and my two sentences in explaining it to you have about 20 in it!
