12. Carrot, Radish , Cabbage and Beet are:
(a) Annual
(b) Biennial (Please confirm)
(c) Perennial
(d) Woody perennial
(e) None of these

Correction:

These are annual vegetables as they complete their vegetative growth in one season and are harvested after that but for seed production these are biennials because they complete their reproductive growth in second season.
so we can say that:
1: Annual for consumption.
2: Biennial for seed production.
