• It has 4 fool

• Just because the hole is long doesn't mean there are two holes.

• I think a straw only has one hole because you only need to drill one hole through a plastic cylinder to make one. There's a difference between a hole and an opening. The straw has two openings, but only has one hole.

• There's one hole because it connects to the same thing. Like saying a wire from one end to another is a different wire on two different ends. But technically theres no holes because it's really just a tube.

• One..... it's like a tunnel.

• It's like a tunnel; a tunnel doesn't have two holes, just one continuous hole all the way through.

• if i could i would say non, saying a straw has a hole implies it has a hole in one of the sides. one does not say a tunnel has a hole in it so why would a straw have a hole in it, it is a tube you could easily say a straw is just a long hole in a peace of thin plastic; but that would be stupid because that is not what a straw is. a straw is just a thin peace of plastic formed into a simi-long cylindrical tube for drinking things

• A shirt has 4 holes in it. So it doesnâ€™t matter if the holes connect. You count both openings

• Well technically guys a straw has an infinite amount of opening between molecules, so I'm gonna pick this one because it's closer to near-infinity.

Neither. A hole has to have a base. It's a tube!

The definition of a HOLE IS, "a hollow place in a solid body or surface." and the definition of a TUBE IS, "a long, hollow cylinder.", so a tube has a hole by definition. A tube only has one hollow place that I know of, so I think there is only one hole.
