    How quickly can you find out what is unusual about this
    paragraph? It looks so ordinary that you would think that
    nothing was wrong with it at all and, in fact, nothing is. But
    it is unusual. Why? If you study it and think about it you may
    find out, but I am not going to assist you in any way. You must
    do it without coaching. No doubt, if you work at it for long, it
    will dawn on you. Who knows? Go to work and try your skill. Par
    is about half an hour.

















































    Answer:

    The paragraph does not contain any instances of the letter 'e', the most common letter in the English alphabet.
