e.g.      –                Neither mathematics nor physics is easy

–                The rich neither cares for the prosperity of  the community in this slum area nor tries to pay a visit to see how they try to survive..

Another way to join two negative sentences that are identical except for their subjects is “and neither construction.

The combination of those two sentences is The technology in agriculture hasn’t been developed, and neither has the technology of transportation

 

–  The first group couldn’t do it well.

The second one couldn’t do it well.

  77. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back
    to your blog? My blog site is in the very same area of interest
    as yours and my users would genuinely benefit from a lot
    of the information you present here. Please let me know if this okay with you.
    Appreciate it!

  78. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your blog.
    It appears as though some of the text within your content
    are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening
    to them too? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.

    Appreciate it
