6. depends on what you mean by "vegetable...."
If you mean vegetative tissues, like green leaves (spinach, chard, broccoli, etc) that's somatic tissue but the plant still reproduces sexually-- if the grower lets it. Fruits, like tomatoes, peppers, cukes, squash, eggplant, and so on ARE the products of sexual reproduction, except in some seedless varieties.
