Neither, None, or both?
I noticed the following question in a health and fitness quiz:
Which best describes your exercise program?
a) both weight training and aerobic exercise
b) either weight training or aerobic exercise
I think the 3rd option should have been “c) neither”, and “none” seems wrong to me. What do you think?
I see where you’re coming from and why you prefer “neither.” But I think they didn’t use “neither” because it is singular, and a & b contain two items so cannot be referred to as singular. I think c should have been “no exercise.”
