Which of the two is correct:
Either me or my brother prepare the breakfast.
Either me or my brother prepares the breakfast.?
Thank you very much.
Thank you The French.
Any natives on this?
And we could also use I instead of me, right?
(Both were correct, I guess)
Well, I prepares would seem weird.
Should this not read
Either I or my brother prepare the breakfast.
You would not say
me prepare the breakfast
you would say
I prepare the breakfast
If I am wrong, please let me know.
So you say that if you use 'I' instead of 'me' in:
Either my brother or I prepare ...
then in this case we cannot use the singular (prepares) form. Otherwise it's:
Either my brother or me prepares ...
Is this the right understanding?
I give you the answer, when you use 'Either... or' or 'Neither..nor' with two singular subjects you must write the verb in the singular form. It is the same if you write I or me.
See you later. (I am not a teacher).
