When do i use "tai" or "vai"? They both seem to come up but i can tell when to use which


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FiskeFinne

As far as I understand 'vai' means exclusive 'or', so the answer cannot be "both". When asking "Would you like milk or sugar?" I think 'tai' would be used, as the answer may be one, both, or neither.

Any native Finns know if that's correct?
