Despite the money that has been invested by the industry in the attempt tto pursuade Americans that highly processed foods are the best foods, the populace stubbornly clings to the believe that such foods are neither particularly healthy or tasty.

B. are neither particularly healthful nor tasty
C. are neither particularly healthy nor tasty
D. are not particularly healthful or tasteful
E. are not very healthy nor tasty

PS. Carsen, how about now? Here is the complete list, and I changed numbers 1-4 to B-D, also statement C is neither

Hi

Neither .. or ... ---> is wrong in the statement. Hence the answer is '2'.

Neither .. nor ... ---> goes well and satisfies.

(Part of this is edited, as I did not see the correspondng number of the answer)

B for me. Neither... nor is the right idiom and I believe "healthy" or "healthful" are each adjectives which can be used interchangeably.

Carsen meant that original sentence was wrong and that he picked B

Oh ok Paul, gotcha. Well, which one would you chose now? Really, the essence of the question is healthy vs healthful.

You are right. The battle is between "healthy" and "healthful". I think D should be the answer. Final answer. I have to go for a while so can't give explanation for now...

Sorry guys, I shouldve phrased the questions correctly in the first place. Anyway, dont want to cause any more confusion, so here it is. The correct answer is B, even if C uses the correct idion, Neither...noe. The point of this SC is that, processed foods are helful not healthy. Healthy refers to the state of health of some organism. Healthful is the proper way to describe something that promotes health. Hope that helps.

Nice question. Should have stuck with my original answer . But yes, I looked it up the dictionnary on my way back and do realize the subtle difference. It reminds me of checking the difference between "tasty" and "tasteful"

Paul, tasty refers to quality of food, tastful concerns more with aesthetics or, having good taste.
