Is "He sleeps and does not listen." bad English? Or should it also be right?

The answer "He sleeps and does not listen" should definitely be accepted., but there is a problem with this sentence. It has been deleted from the course, but obviously it still appears. This means we can't edit it and add new translations. I reported it to Duo yesterday, but I have no idea how soon it can be fixed.

It's still showing up - 21-12-14. Just curious, how would one say "he doesn't sleep or listen"?

The ghost sentence thing hasn't been solved, and I don't think it will be before the holidays are over.
He doesn't sleep or listen, I'd prefer Han varken sover eller lyssnar (lit. He neither sleeps nor listens).

So 'eller' is 'or' and 'varken...eller' is 'neither...no'? How would you speak 'either...or'?

varken … eller is neither … nor and antingen … eller is either … or.
