Reply to "Either Or Neither is correct and why?"

either/ neither .. (Why)

Hello, Mr. Ahmed, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange!

Only "either" works. "Neither" doesn't work there because it would form a double negative with "don't." In order to use "neither," you would need to remove "don't":

  • I don't watch either of the films. They are boring.
  • I watch neither of the films. They are boring.
