I have 4 (four) questions about "paired conjunctions:
1. He is interested in not only tennis but also football.
2. He is interested not only in tennis but also in football. They are both sort of OK, but I dont't like them. "He is not only interested in tennis, but also in football", would be better.
Are both of them correct? I think so.However, which one is more formal?Question 2:
1. You can come either on Monday or on Friday.
2. You can come on either Monday or Friday.
I personally think "2" is incorrect. Am I right? They are both OK.
I don't want to talk to __ her __ her sister.
A. both ... and B. either ... or C. not only ... but also D. neither ... nor
I opt "A". Am I right? Who can help me how to explain why "B" is not true. I am sure that "C" or "D" is not a wise true. B is correct. A is incorrect.
Which one is correct?
1. Sometimes it is not only wise to listen to your parents but also interesting.
2. Sometimes it is not only wise to listen to your parents but also interesting to listen to them.
3. Sometimes it is not only wise but also interesting to listen to your parents.
I think "1" is the best choice. But how about "3. It is not only wise but also.." I think this sentence is OK. #3 is the best one, IMO.
How about this one "He not only likes, but also understands French films" Is this sentence correct? It's correct with the small additions I have made.
Who can get me out. I have been so confused.
