    • Rubber you use to erase pencil writings!

    • so you probably want to say "what isn't the rubber getting used up"... to empty something generally refers to something that contains volume. so emptying a water bottle would be accurate. on the other hand an eraser (or rubber) is something you use up

    • correction:
      "Why isn't the rubber getting used up?"

  • Why does the rubber not deteriorate?

    Is that it? I dunno, English is not my first language.

    • Rubber you use to erase pencil writings!

    • In US English, we would say something like, "Why isn't the eraser being used up?"

      The word "rubber" here carries several different meanings, and none of them usually mean an eraser.

    • Rubber you use to erase pencil writings!

    • Asides from what others have said, you could also write that as

      "Why isn't the eraser erasing?"

      In this context, its means why isn't the rubber removing the pencil?
