Vernier calliper can be used to m,easure the size of anything having size more than the least count of the instrument
 
Size of the pencil can be measured by keeping the pencil between the jaws of the callipers
Now record the number of division the 0 division of vernier scal;e (over the main scale) comes near most the division of main scale (MSD). then record the division on vernier scale which coincides with any division on main scale (VSD)
 
the length of pencil is :
 
MSD + (least count)*(VSD)
