Question #2: A) Bibb lettuce Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable, which means that it is related to Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, rutabagas, and turnips. Not lettuce though -- that's in a different vegetable family.

Question #4: D) All of the above Broccoli's cancer-preventing properties have been -- and are continuing to be -- rigorously explored. Many studies support the idea that broccoli contains elements that may help reduce a person's risk of cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health, those risk-fighting properties may include fighting inflammation and carcinogens, protecting cells from DNA damage, and shutting down bacteria and viruses.

Question #5: B) 6 pounds The California Department of Public Health has revealed that "As of 2008, the average person in the United States ate nearly six pounds of fresh broccoli per year, almost four times more than the yearly amount in 1980." Go broccoli, go!
