France or Argentina

Which are correct:

1) I have heard that in this city only rich people go to restaurant A or restaurant B. I don't know which it is they go to though. It is either one or the other.

2) I have heard that in this city only rich people will go to France or Argentina this Christmas.

3) I have heard that in this city only poor people order onion rings or French fries. Rich people order both.


4) I have heard that in this city only poor people order either onion rings or French fries. Rich people order both.



I am not at all sure about '1'. I think in '3' you really need 'either', that is why I think '4' is good and '3' is incorrect.

Gratefully,
Navi
