"Neither John nor Carol has a car." I read this sentence in a book. We are mentioning about two people here so, could you please tell me that why "Has" instead of "Have" has been used in this sentence?

I am not a teacher.
You will see both forms used. The argument for using the singular is based on the idea that a negative cannot be plural.
I didn't say that I agreed with it. I happily use the plural.
What I questioned was the idea that a negative cannot be plural.
Many such claims that are presented as rules don't stand close examination.
