Quiz on "Either...or (and) Neither...nor" (Rules explanation and quiz)

EITHER ..... OR (AND) NEITHER ..... NOR

Grammar Points: 

Use either when you talk about two things or people.

Examples:

(1) “I would like either cookies or popcorn.

I can’t decide.”

(2) “I would like either (of the snacks).”

(3) “I don’t want to eat either snack.”


Use neither (for negative sentences) when you talk about two things or people. Examples: 

(1) “Jack has been to neither Canada nor the United States.” 

(2) “Jack has been to neither (of the countries).” 

(3) There is no negative for neither.


Grammar Note:

A tricky agreement problem: Neither-nor

When two subjects are joined by neither-nor or either-or, choosing the right

number for the verb can be tricky for writers. Focus your attention on the noun

closest to the verb. If it is singular, as in the sentence above, choose the singular

verb. If the noun is plural, choose the plural form of the verb.
