All nuts are fruits so picking either nut or fruit should be considered correct. Also, corn is a cereal grain which are fruits of the Zea mays plant. Basically, if the thing that you eat develops from a pollinated flower of a plant, it is a fruit. Think tomato, zucchini, apple, blueberries, beans. If the thing that you eat is the plant itself (leaf, stalk, or root), it is a vegetable. Think lettuce, celery, potato, carrot.

Aubergine (eggplant) is NOT a vegetable. It is a fruit. "Eggplant (US, Australia), aubergine (UK), or brinjal (South Asia and South Africa) is a plant species in the nightshade family Solanaceae. Solanum melongena is grown worldwide for its edible fruit."

5/9. Botanically, I disagree with some of your answers. Fruits are a result of pollination.

An aubergine is a fruit. It is used as a vegetable, but so are cucumbers, avocados and tomatoes, but it is still the fruit of the eggplant.
