Ans : E

Easy question.
It's true that either/neither is singular, there for answer is A.

One should know that, however, if either/neither is followed by a or/nor it is important that the subject agrees to the last noun. Ex:

Wrong: Neither me nor my friends is going to the party
Correct: Neither me nor my friends are going to the party.
See the difference?

+1 if you think this was helpful

Cheers,
Erik

Neither of X is always singular and requires a singular verb.
Only answer choice A has a singular verb 'has'.
