    Default neither / every

    Neither calculator worked properly.
    Every calculator worked properly.

    According to the solutions of the test only the second one is correct. Could you please help me on this?

    Thanks a lot.

    Both are possible. More context might make one unacceptable.

    Thank you. Yes, it would be easier to decide which one to choose if we knew that they have 2 or more calculators, but that is all in that example.
