I'd appreciate it if someone would answer my question. Thanks in advance.

Which is correct, A or B? If both are correct, tell me the difference?

A: You can apply for the job regardless of age or sex?

B: You can apply for the job regardless of age and sex?


In my opinion, in B either age or sex can be some kind of limit, so B doesn't make sense. Am I right?

I agree.

I just wish the punctuation were better. Why do you have all those question marks? The only part that needs a question mark is Which is correct, A or B?

By the way, using please is a nice touch in making requests in English: If both are correct, please tell me the difference.

Thank you Jerry S. And thank you Richard. I used the wrong punctuation.
