i read a sentence like this:
it must not be A, and contain B.
i feel confused that the complete expression for this sentence is "it must not be A, and must not contain B" or " it must not be A, and must contain B"?
please help me. thanks.
It's ambiguous all right; however, the conjunction 'and' helps a bit to disambiguate it:
Ex: It must not be A,and [must] contain B. [B, not A]
The alternative is,
Ex: It must not be A or contain B. [neither A nor B]
