Either... or is used to offer a choice between two possibilities...

 

 

 

   Thus, let´s think that your sentence has not two alternatives (as you put it), but

two possibilities  either ON, IN ( you would use preposition to complete the answer there) or A (indefinite article).

    Hope it clears up things.
