Confused about when to use definite article
I've read the comments but I'm still confused. On a test question, I was marked wrong for writing "Je n'aime ni les pommes ni les poires" when asked to translate "I eat neither apples or pears".
This seems to me like a general statement and not referring to specific apples or pears, so why would the only accepted answer be "Je n'aime ni pommes ni poires"?
This question relates to:French lesson "Ne ... ni ... ni = Neither ... nor (negation)"
