    1-"last, the last"

    Last can be an adjective, noun, verb or adverb. The last is the noun form.

    noun: She is always nagging me. Will I ever hear the last of it?
    verb: This paint is very good. The color lasts for a long time on the fence, even in direct sunshine.
    adjective: The greedy child took the last cookie.
    adverb: When did you last see him?

    2-"both, either and neither".

    Both of us can do the work.
    Either of us can do the work.
    Neither of us can do the work.
