    Either

    Hi,

    Is there any mistake if I write:

    "We can choose either A, B or C".

    The problem is that I see "either" is commonly in the choice between two things. Now we have three. Please give me your comments.

    Thanks.

    Either can be used with more than 2 things; your sentence is fine.

    An alternative is between.

    We can choose between A, B or C
    .

    Thank you very much, but "between" or "among"?

    Personally, I would choose between.
