Correct usage must include both these words of the idiom: "neither ... nor...."

Option A - Uses "Neither... or..." (incorrect)
Option B - uses "neither-nor" correctly Correct
Option C - health (noun) should be in the adjective form: "healthy" or "healthful" (incorrect)
Option D - Sentence meaning is lost: 'Tasteful' is not the same as 'Tasty'. ( Example: The Soup was tasty. The marriage hall decor was tasteful) (incorrect)
Option E - Incorrect use of the idiom. (incorrect)
