    Default no... and ...

    Ex.

    There are a few differences like no parallel parking and highway driving.

    There are a few differences like no extra input cords and upgrade slots.

    Q:

    Does the "NO" apply also to the content that follows "and"? (meaning no parallel parking and NO highway driving and no extra iput cords and NO upgrade slots).

    Or does it only apply when "OR" is used instead of "and"?

    What is the term that describes the rule (if no applies to both)?

    Thanks in advance.

    You need "or" not "and".

    You could change the order to make misunderstanding less likely:

    There are a few differences like highway driving and
    no parallel parking.
    There are a few differences like upgrade slots and
    no extra input cords.
