The meaining of the word NEITHER [#permalink] New post 01 Mar 2011, 04:50
I would like someone to explain the meaning of the word NEITHER, as in the sentence "Which of the following potential strategies would suit NEITHER of the two cities?"

Given cities A and B, does it mean that the strategy won't suit A, AND it won't suit B? Or does it mean that it won't suit AT LEAST one of the cities?

Dictionaries are rather confusing in their explanations.

In that regard, the word EITHER means "AT LEAST ONE of the two" or "BOTH of the two"?

Thank you.

=> It means that it won't suit A and it won't suit B

=> It means at least one of the two. Depending on the context it can also mean one of the two but not both
