    Thumbs down Lists

    Please consider the following list:

    1. Option A, B, or C:
    A.
    B.
    C.

    The writer of the list contends that A and B (together) or C are the choices. I believe that, the way it is written, A or B or C are the choices. Please offer your input. Thanks.

    Re: Lists

    I agree with you. If [A and B] is one option, I think it would have to be phrased "the options are either A plus B or C"
