Question

MCQ

From the set of sentences given below in question, choose the sentence that is grammatically correct.

Options

  • We can take either the morning flight nor the one in the afternoon.

  • We can take neither the morning flight or the one in the afternoon.

  • We can take either morning flight or the one in afternoon.

  • We can take either the morning flight or the one in the afternoon.

Solution

  1. ‘Either’, when used as a conjunction, should be followed by ‘or’. ‘Neither’, when used as a conjunction, should be followed by ‘nor’. Thus, both the sentence 'We can take either the morning flight nor the one in the afternoon.' and 'We can take neither the morning flight or the one in the afternoon.' are grammatically incorrect.
  2. We use the definite article before the expression of time or position. We also use the definite article to denote the pronoun of a specified kind.
    Therefore, 'We can take either the morning flight or the one in the afternoon.' is the correct sentence.
