Sir,

I have to fill up the blank using (either/neither/both).

1. My mother took out two cucumber from the fridge and cut (neither/both) of them.

2. Last night, my brither and I heard a ghost story.(Neither/both ) of us could sleep after that.

3. John and mary have a cow, but (neither/either) of them knows how to milk it.

4. This library is open every Wednesday and Friday. We can go ther on (either) day.

5. My uncle helped Shirni and me to climb the tree. He didn't want (either) of us to fall down.

Are the words given in brackets correct?

I have select more than one possible word, please do comment if both words sound correct.

Thanks.

4 and 5 are fine. Let's go back over 1, 2, and 3. Here's a hint. You need to think in terms of the meanings of the sentences. Be especially careful about the meaning of "and" and "but".

If you take something out of the refrigerator, do you do that in order not to do anything with it?

Ghost stories are scary. They scare people. Is it easy to sleep if you are afraid?

John and Mary have a cow, but what? What does "but" suggest? Does it suggest that John and Mary will be able to use the cow for milk? Or not?

Try 1, 2, and 3 again and we can check them again. Emotion: smile

Perfect! Every one of the examples is correct! Good job!

I hope you learned something about "both" and "neither". Emotion: smile
