A: 'How many brothers or sisters do you have?'
B: 'I have no brotherS or sisterS.' ( Is this correct that I use the plural form?)
C: 'I don't have any brotherS or sisterS either.' ( Correct?)
Thank you, bhaisahab, but I still can't understand why we use the plural form. Since I don't have ONE brother and I don't have ONE sister, why don't we say 'I have no brother or sister'?
I think the reason might be something like this: if we apply a negative to a whole set (e.g. the set of brothers), it is redundant to individuate the members of the set.
