It's a trick question. Bell peppers are considered vegetables in culinary contexts; but, botanically speaking, they are fruits.

7) What kinds of things do you buy second-hand/used? musical instruments and related gear

8) When was the last time you got your eyes tested? 11 months ago, thanks for reminding me to make an appointment!

10) What is your preferred writing implement? The UniBall "Signo" is the best line of gel pens. They make a .28mm version, which I thought would be too fine for me, but it's such a good pen and I go ahead and write smaller letters with it, and it's nice. It's really made for the Japanese market, where their detailed characters require very fine writing.

Peas, on the other hand, are botanically a legume.

Legume is French for vegetable. With French cuisine you're good to go.

7) What kinds of things do you buy second-hand/used?

Clothes, shoes, furniture, dishes, electronics, appliances, tools, camping / sporting gear, toys (LEGO especially), miscellaneous hardware / electronic components, any kind of durable good that could be re-used / re-purposed.

I've collected enough stereo components to have audiophile systems in my home, garage, workshop, car, and shelves full of spare parts.

When I wear fancy slacks and ties and shiny shoes to the office, it is all used. Nice v-neck sweaters, cardigans. Scrubs.

Basically the only things I buy new are food.

eta:
MUSICAL EQUIPMENT. Drums. A whole workshop full. A 1970s Ludwig Vistalite bass drum for $20 is one of my best purchases ever.

I tried to buy used food; but, when people realized what I was doing they wouldn't sell their pets to me.
