Avoiding Faulty Parallelism

Your sentences should be well-written and error free. Making sure that sentences with coordinating conjunctions and correlative conjunctions have good parallel structure is part of writing good sentences.
Good parallelism requires that the grammatical structures on either side of a coordinating conjunction be the same.
Structures also need to be parallel in sentences with correlative conjunctions. There are four: both...and, not only...but also, either...or, and neither...nor.
READ THE SENTENCE CAREFULLY

Subject/verb agreement and correlative conjunctions

1. Since both...and always indicates two items, the verb has to be plural.
2. With either...or, neither...nor, and not only...but also the verb should agree with the subject following the second part of the correlative conjunction.
