    Either vs Neither

    Hi, guys~
    The answer is (D). How about (B)? (B) cannot be an ansewr?
    (B) is semantically awkward? Thank you ^^

    ------- of the two subjects in the experiment
    realized that they were being given placebos
    instead of the real medication.
    (A) Most
    (B) Either
    (C) Several
    (D) Neither

    I think (B) is just as good as (D).

    I disagree. In this case, only “neither” makes sense to me.

    If you want to say one of the two subjects realized, you can say “One of the two subjects realized…” or “Either subject A or subject B realized … "
