You're thinking of a carrot right?

If not, you're among the 2% of the population whose minds are warped enough to think of something else. 98% of people will answer with carrot when given this exercise. Freaky, huh?

when it said between 12-5 i got muddled up and originally thought 6 then changed to 7 before i read that that was what most people thought. aslo when i thought of carrot, i was thinking, 'there is no way anyone else will think of this'. so much for that :)
