"A green pepper is also a vegetable" is correct too.

"Is also a vegetable" should be correct


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Deborah712044

Yes I agree. I would say "is vegetable too". Or "is also a vegetable".

Sometimes it's only accepted the literal writing

Isn't it a fruit?

While literally equivalent, syntactically English still prefers also to be near its verb. I think both should be right.
