Obtain the real public IP address of mine with curl when using the socks5 proxy to access the corresponding api.

See the following testings on my Ubuntu 20.10 host:

$ curl
$ curl -x socks5://

I want to know if I still can obtain my real public IP address with
curl even using the socks5 proxy to access the corresponding API. Is
this possible?
