e. 5

ANSWER: 3
 
'Neither...nor' is the negative of 'Either..or'. It means, 'Not one or the other of the two'.

This conjunction is used in negative sense.

Formula 1: (One person – two qualities/actions – two alternatives – both not applicable)

Subject +Verb/HV +Neither +Q1/A1 +Nor +Q2/A2

Here, two qualities have been mentioned and the subject is concerned with neither of them.
Replace 'not' with 'nor'.

'Neither..nor' is used in pair.

The correct sentence should be: Samay is neither right nor wrong.
