Steel? normally zinc plated.

Of course the world is a lot more complicated than that.

This answer varies with the class of bolt.

Commonly a steel with an "L" in the name, for lead content, is used. We often use the jargon name "screw stock" for these materials. Screws and nuts made with leaded steel aren't weldable.

Better screws of a higher grade will often use a carbon steel.

I've seen screws and nuts made from about everything in the steel catalog.
