Here are 139 questions — some of them with a number of parts — that Sen. Patty Murray (Wash.), the highest-ranking Democrat on the Senate Education Committee, asked Betsy DeVos, the Michigan billionaire nominated by President Trump to be U.S. education secretary.

On Monday morning, DeVos delivered answers to more than 800 questions to Democrats on the committee who had posed queries to her after her performance at the Jan. 17 confirmation hearing, at which she displayed little knowledge of key education issues.
