    Re: either& neither

    B) "Me, neither."

    A) doesn't work. nor is a correlative conjunction. That means, it operates in a piar, like this, neither...nor.

    C) doesn't work. either is positive. It's added to negative sentences, like this,

    Girl: I don't know.
    Novak: I don't know, either.

    Note, "Me, _____" does not house a negative. That's why C) doesn't work.

    D) doesn't work. too is positive.

    E) doesn't work. also is positive.

    See here for more information on also, too, either

    All the best.
