Section D (7marks) Read the passage. Then answer the questions below. What is a fruit? What is a vegetable? Both fruits and vegetables grow from plants. They are both very healthy. But how can we tell them apart? A fruit is usually very sweet. An apple is a fruit, and it is very sweet. A strawberry is a fruit, and it is very sweet. An orange is a fruit, and it is very sweet. But not all fruits are very sweet. A tomato is a fruit, but it is not very sweet. So what is a fruit? A fruit grows from a flower. And it contains seeds inside of it. An apple grows from the flower of an apple tree. And it contains seeds. A strawberry grows from the flower of a strawberry bush. And it contains seeds. An orange grows from the flower of an orange tree. And it contains seeds. A tomato grows from the flower of a tomato plant. And it contains seeds. All of these grow from flowers and contain seeds. That is why they are fruits. Now let's talk about vegetables. A vegetable usually isn't sweet. Broccoli is a vegetable, and it is not sweet. Lettuce is a vegetable, and it is not sweet. A radish is a vegetable, and it is not sweet. But not all vegetables are not sweet. A sweet potato is a vegetable, and it is very sweet. So what is a vegetable? A vegetable grows from the earth. And it does not contain seeds inside of it. Broccoli grows from the earth. And it does not contain seeds. Lettuce grows from the earth. And it does not contain seeds. A radish grows from the earth. And it does not contain seeds. A sweet potato grows from the earth. And it does not contain seeds. All of these grow from the earth and do not contain seeds. That is why they are vegetables. So, next time you see a red, round tomato, maybe you'll think twice about calling it a vegetable. Although it may look like an apple, you'll find it's quite different!
