Critical Thinking Question

One coulomb is a very large unit of charge, and yet it is common for us to talk about current of several amperes. How is this possible? KNOW THE ANSWER? Please share your views with us. Thanks!

How is what possible?

The ampere is a measure of the amount of electric charge passing a point per unit time.
A coulomb is the charge transferred by a constant current of one ampere in one second.

So what's the question?
