あるいは can express possibility with sentences ending in (の)かもしれない
e.g. あるいは、だったのかもしれない。(Perhaps it was a lie). The implication of alternatives remains, but they don't need to be listed.

Since there are no official lists (anywhere, even with the textbook companies) for grammar (as well as vocab and kanji) with the new JLPT tests, there's going to be different lists depending on where you go. Besides, this one's easy :)
