    It is neither an herb nor a spice.

    No. I don't think fresh garlic is a spice at all. It's a vegetable. On the other hand, dried garlic powder can probably be considered to be a kind of spice, can't it?

    While garlic is actually a vegetable that is used as a flavoring, some people consider it an herb-fresh, or a spice-dried.

    No; it's a vegetable (but often used for flavouring)

    No, it's not a spice.

    The way it is used  is like a spice -- it's too strongly flavoured to be used as a straight vegetable.
