    Either or/neither nor
    Message from saurabh posted on 30-07-2021 at 12:19:53 (D | E | F)
    Hello,
    Could you help me please?
    1. Neither the students nor their teacher was present in the school.
    2. Either I or they are guilty.
    3. Either they or I am guilty.
    Which one is correct?

    Hello.
    Neither is negative, like not... either.
    I don't like tea. I don't like coffee either.
    I like neither tea nor coffee.

    Either... or... gives a positive choice.
    You can have either tea or coffee.

    1. Neither the students nor their teacher was present in the school. It means that nobody from these two groups was present.
    2. Either I or they are guilty. It means that one of the two groups is guilty.
    3. Either they or I am guilty. It means that one of the two groups is guilty.

    The three examples are correct.
