Q. Neither the students (1) / nor the teacher (2) / was in their (3) / class. (4) / No Error (5)- Published on 18 Jan 17
Replace 'their' with 'his'.
When two different nouns are joined by 'either...or; neither...nor', the pronoun is used according to the number and gender of the second noun.
The correct sentence should be: Neither the students nor the teacher was in his class.
e.g. Either your brother or you have done your work.
