It is proper to say "I need to choose between apples and oranges"

OpenStudy (anonymous):

You can think about the logical relations given by and or, or. And is both or is one or the other

OpenStudy (anonymous):

"or" is the proper way

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Defiantly "Or" since it's asking you to choose between two subjects, being you can go with this or you can go with that.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

dang it!

Personally, I would say, "I need to choose either apples or oranges." Once the word between was used, 'and' became the proper conjunction.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Well the correct answer turned out to be 'and'/ Thanks for your help eveyone

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I think that if you use the word 'between' it is always 'and'
