    Question on explanation for 'seldom, rarely, and never.'

    Hi teachers,
    If you agree with the explanation, which option is better?

    a) Even though the adverbs, seldom,rarely, and never, are used only
    withan affirmative sentence, they can express a positive or a negative idea.

    b) Even though the adverbs, seldom,rarely, and never, are used only
    in an affirmative sentence, they can express a positive or a negative idea.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Rover,
    Thank you for your reply. So you agree with the explanation then.
    I guess this one is even better:
    Even though the adverbs, seldom, rarely, and never, are used only in affirmative sentences, they can express a positive or negative idea.
