Why can't hay be used for or here? I thought hay and hoặc were the same?

They have the same meaning. But hay can be used in both statements and questions while hoặc can be only used in statements.

I think "hay" is used for questions and negative sentences, while "hoac" is for positive.

Note: correct me if I'm wrong.

"hay" should be accepted here.
