Hi Sumesh,

In the case of verbs, soit comes just before both choices just as it did with nouns.

e.g.

X doit soit faire ceci, soit faire cela = X must either do this or do that 

Michel doit réparer soit la table, soit le buffet Michel must mend either the table or the sideboard

Nous pouvons aller soit au théâtre, soit au cinémaWe can either go to the theatre or the cinema

so 'soit' goes directly before the item it refers to.

Hope this helps!
