    Default a grammar question

    Of course I didn't put your suncream ......I put it in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom.

    A) anywhere
    B) nowhere
    C) somewhere
    D) where else
    E) wherever

    Which one do you think is correct? My guess is B.

    Then you have a double negative [not generally good English], which produces a positive = "I did not put your suncream nowhere" = I put your suncream somewhere

    "anywhere" =in or to any place

    My choice is: none of the above. More likely, in my opinion:
    Of course I didn't put your sunscreen just anywhere. I put it in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom.

    'anywhere else' also works.
    Of course I didn't put your sunscreen anywhere else. I put it.......
