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.

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.

I never tasted cassavas. Artichokes, pumpkins are those I like the most while broccoli, garlic and ginger are the ones I like the least. I use garlic and ginger as spices to give flavour to food.

I really adore broccoli, spinach and radish. Nowadays it is very actual to drink tea with ginger and lemon. And I like garlic, it's boosts appetite.

Of these vegetables I like the most broccoli and artichoke and the least, I suppose it´s radish because I´ve never tasted it Is it correct this text?

Hello AdrianaPC,

What you wrote is clear and easy to understand. The word order is not entirely natural, however:

Of these vegetables I like broccoli and artichoke the most, and I suppose I like radish the least because I´ve never tasted it.

Please ,someone tell me that ,what the cassava and chard are.

Hello mdaivid,

Cassava is a root vegetable (meaning that it grows under the ground) which grows in tropical climates.

Chard or Swiss chard is a leafy vegetable popular in many European countries. It comes from the Mediterranean region originally.

You can find wikipedia pages on both these plants.
