1) They deny negotiating with you and contacting Harrison.
2) They deny negotiating with you or contacting Harrison.

3) They deny both negotiating with you and contacting Harrison.
4) They deny either negotiating with you or contacting Harrison.

Which are correct?

Which mean:
a) They say they didn't negotiate with you and contact Harrison (they might have done one of those things)
b) They say they didn't negotiate with you or contact Harrison
c) They either say they didn't negotiate with you or say they didn't contact Harrison

Gratefully,
Navi
