- For Teachers
Either can be adverb, determiner, pronoun or conjunction.
Normally we use either in negative sentences instead of too, or also.
Ex: I don't eat pork and my wife doesn't either.
Besides, people will use either with or whilst neither with nor.
Ex: Either she goes or I go.
Neither of them did it.
So either at the poll means, neither of them are correct for you...

yup, i was right, its during
' we had important things to talk about but couldn't due to work. Taking this as a golden opurtunity, we spoke during the cofee break. '
Can this example explain it well?
Please point out if there is any mistakes, thanks.
we spoke during the coffee break ..
can we say :
we spoke while the coffee was burning ?
While I have no objection to polls on matters on which even educated natives may disagree, and have myself voted in one or two, there is no possibility of any such disagreement regarding this simple, grammatical choice.
The only correct answer is 'during' - and there's and end to it!
I couldn't choose. I think we need a continuous tense because both show us a period of time.
Iam choosing during , is that right?
During refers to a particular (fixed) time, while practically implies simultaneous activities. Right?
