each boy and girl?

This question has been answered · 2 replies
Hello,

Which is correct?

I told each boy and girl to go home.
I told each boy and each girl to go home.

I think it is the first one, but there are TWO things following "each."
Can you tell which is correct and WHY?

Thank you.

It is not necessary to repeat 'each'.
