THE BRONX - What city do you belong in? What kind of vegetable are you? These are just some of the quiz topics erupting on social media. 

Buzzfeed.com offers users online personality tests that will give them answers to a myriad of silly questions, so News 12 hit the streets in Soundview to see if Bronx residents are getting sucked in. 

Most people say they have much more productive things to do with their time than to take the tests and share the results with their online friends. 

According to the Associated Press, Buzzfeed has produced up to five quizzes per day for the past two months. The most popular one, which lets you know what state is your best fit, has received more than 41 million page views.
