The thumb rule to remember here is that in formal writing, we use neither-nor/either – or constructions only when two issues are involved. For more than two issues, as in the given case, neither-nor/either–or constructions are considered unidiomatic. Since three phenomena are involved, we can safely eliminate choices A, B, C and E that use neither or either, leaving only D as the right answer
