    Stainless steel is the most common, but if MONEL METAL is used, a smaller diameter shaft can be substituted.

    Monel metal of the higher grades are more corrosion resistant and can have smaller diameter sizing for equivalent strength of a stainless steel shaft. But Monel is not cheap.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monel

    It depends on the power being transmitted, the shaft diameter and the medium of Operation.

    Any suitable material.

    Propeller shafts are often made of stainless steel, because for reasons related to mechanical resistance, it is impossible to manufacture it in aluminum alloys, except perhaps in 7075. The propeller is very often made in brass, and sometimes in cast aluminum, for small crafts.
