- Published on 18 Jan 17

a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 3
 
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.
