Answer

1. Lettuce
2. Cabbage
3. Cucumber
4. Tomato
5. Watermelon

Explanation of each answer:

1. The words "let us" point to lettuce.

2. Cab is another name for a taxi, and the rings in a tree tell its age. When we combine cab and age, cabbage is the result.

3. A pool stick is called a cue stick. Burnt umber is a brownish color. When we combine cue, c, and umber, cucumber is the result.

4. Mating socks is an expression for pairing socks. When mating socks at the toes, tomato is the result.

5. Water is a drink. When we combine water, me, and "lon", watermelon is the result.
