Bonjour Diana ! Are you talking about "qu'en est-il" or "ni l'un ni l'autre" ?
qu'en est-il is one of the example sentences in that topic. so yes, qu'en est-il de J et S means what about J and S. It's just a strange construction for me.

Bonjour Diana ! "Qu'en est-il ?" literally means "What is of it?". When used with "de", as such: "Qu'en est-il de ... ?" , it means "What is it of ...? / What about ...?". I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
thank you! that is very helpful!
