a. Both your comments were irrelevant.

Can't this sentence have three meanings?

1. The two comments you made were irrelevant.
2. Each of you two made a comment and both comments were irrelevant.
3. Each of you two made comments and all of your comments were irrelevant.

Many thanks.

    Without any context, 1 sounds more likely. 2 is possible, but 3 isn't.

    Sentences rarely, if ever, exist on their own, in a vacuum, without any context. What context do you have in mind?
    • Thank you!
