I like leafy vegetables (chard, spinach) and cassava, leeks, garlic and green beans the most.
I like pumpkin, broccoli and courgette the least.
I have never eaten artichoke.

I have not heard about cassava before. Actually, I do not like to eat veggies very much. But I am getting to use to like them for my health.
Cassava means ''manyok'' in Turkish, just like ''manyak'' which means ''maniac'' in English.

I don't like pumpkins and I've never eaten cassava, but I particularly like artichokes, that are suitable for several ways of cooking: stuffed, fries, omelette, with pasta, etc.

I like most of those vegetables. As I like garlic and pumpkin the most, I like chard the least. I am fond of baked pumpkin with syrup, walnuts and sesame butter on the top. Moreover, I have heard "cassava" for the first time.

I really enjoy boiled broccoli and cassava soup. I don't like the garlic, especially raw one.

Leeks and pumpkins are those vegetables ı like the most. I use oregano and pepper as spices to give flavor to food. I haven't tasted artichoke and chard.

In task 3, I can't make sure when to use plural when to use singular. e.g. 1 We eat the leaves of chard and spinach. (Why do the answer using singular nouns?) Why my answer (chards and spinaches) is wrong? 2 The part of radishes and leeks that we eat grows partly above ground and partly below. (Why do the answer using plural nouns?) 3 The part of garlic and ginger that we eat also grows below ground. (Why do the answer using singular nouns this time? I believe it is the same structure as the sentence 2) I am totally confused about these usages.

Hello loveiseverything,

It can be confusing.

Some plants are always uncountable. Leafy plants like chard, spinach, lettuce and rocket are examples, and so are herbs and spices like oregano, basil and curry, as well as some other items like garlic, vanilla and ginger. This is why the singular is used with these plants.

Some plants are usually countable. These include radishes, leeks and potatoes, as well as many fruits. This is why the plural is used with these plants.
