Ne Ni Ni in the quiz question is grammatically incorrect.
Neither is one of two things. Therefore the question in the quiz was grammatically incorrect.` I like neither the guitar, nor the violin, nor the piano` is not phrased correctly.
This question relates to:French lesson "Ne ... ni ... ni = Neither ... nor (negation)"

I think you are a bit to restrictive. Rudyard Kipling wrote:
"But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth, when two strong men stand face to face, though they come from the ends of the earth!"
The neither..nor..(nor).. construct seems to have been extended to stand for one and only one choice out of several offered, not just two.
