Plurality Puzzle

The rules:

- The answer to each question is the most likely possibility for any human completing the sentence. For example, the answer to the question:

My gender is __________ .

is

"Male" (according to the CIA World Factbook)

- Each question is entirely separate from the question that precedes or follows it, unless otherwise specified. Therefore, the answer to one question may not logically follow from the answer of the previous question.

- The question may be intentionally vague, especially if the wording of the question implies an assumption. Provide the best answer you can, and justify your understanding of the question, if necessary.
