3. Four Answers: 
    a: The Time machine. Created by H. G. Wells for his 1895 novel, The Time Machine. The Morlocks exist in the future world in the year 802,701 A.D. They are said to have descended from humans, although they have evolved to become a completely different species (better suited to their subterranean habitat) by the 8028th century. Morlocks are humanoid creatures, they don't wear clothing, and are instead covered with fur. The Time Traveller describes them as "almost spiderlike" in their demeanor, in that they silently slink around in the dead of night and snag their prey. Theirs is a troglodyte civilization, where they maintain ancient machines that they may or may not remember how to build; their only entrance to the surface world is through a series of well-like structures which dot the future English countryside. As a result of living underground, the Morlocks are sensitive to light, and have little or no melanin in their skin.
    b: A clockwork orange. Droog is a Nadsat term for friend in A Clockwork Orange, is a speculative fiction novel by Anthony Burgess, published in 1962, and was later the basis for a 1971 film adaptation by Stanley Kubrick.
