Can we use 'nor' without neither like we use 'or' without either in some sentences?


Thanks

In the early part of the twentieth century, many vacationers found that driving automobiles and sleeping in tents allowed them to enjoy nature close at hand and tour at their own pace, with none of the restrictions of passenger trains and railroad timetables or with the formalities, expenses, and impersonality of hotels.

A. with none of the restrictions of passenger trains and railroad timetables or with the - meaning error - the sentence intends to say that by driving automobiles and sleeping in tents, vacationers are able to enjoy nature and tour at their own pace without any restrictions of trains or formalities of hotels. However, the way it is constructed right now, the sentence conveys an illogical meaning that “vacationers enjoy nature and tour at their own pace with the formalities of hotels”.
B. with none of the restrictions of passenger trains, railroad timetables, nor - idiom error - “nor” should be preceded by “neither” while writing down the elements of a list.
C. without the restrictions of passenger trains and railroad timetables nor - same as B
D. without the restrictions of passenger trains and railroad timetables or with the - meaning error - Having without restrictions and with formalities as elements of a list implies that vacationers do not have restrictions of trains but have to face the formalities of hotels.
E. without the restrictions of passenger trains and railroad timetables or the-Correct

Answer E
