This is a tough one in my opinion...once i see the word un-protected it makes me question using the Neither ...Nor rule...cause if the sentence were

Many children ride their bicycles at night pro-tected by neither rudimentary safety equipment, reflectors, nor headlights.

It would make complete sense; the un-protected i think warrants choice D
...wow i actually agree with Folaa on this one :shock:

I dont know why C is wrong i just feel it is cause OR should be used in a positive connotation.
Someone got better xplanations please post em

C for parallelism. Others mix the 'either.. or' or 'neither..nor' which are usually used between 2 things.

either..or suggests the children are not using safety equipments or headlights.
But a single 'or' result in a more concise sentence. C for me.

Ans C. Either... or OR Neither... nor is for comparison or presenting a set of two. Here we have three objects and a simple A,B or C usage is good.

Out of C and E I pick...E


So I ruled out A and B right away because the correct form would be "protected by neither"


D I ruled out mostly because it is neither/nor...nor alone doesn't work.

That left with C and E I chose E only because of the either/or idiom but really had no other reason.
