I do believe this should be interpreted: CRT is classifiable as a framework, even if it is not object oriented - after all it has its interface and its structures to be used in its context.
The same goes, in my opinion, for Windows API, OpenCV, Boost, STL... any coherent set of libraries.

That way I answered I use only one, even if actually it is a set made of Win API, CRT and STL in rare cases (must interface with VB6 AND stick to VC++6, which has an incomplete and bugged implementation of STL).

EDIT: it was typo-ween there...
