    Question question about the position of 'also' in a sentence.

    Hello fellow teachers and kind friends
    I read some rules about how different positions of the word "Only" can change the meaning of a sentence or not make sense at all. I can assume it applies to 'Also' also (like this sentence). Like for example, can you please check if the following similar sentences have the same meaning?:

    1) Future conflicts is what we are trying to prevent from happening also.
    2) Future conflicts is what we are also trying to prevent from happening.
    3) Future conflicts is what we are trying to prevent also from happening.

    [By the way, correct any grammar (like highlight or mark) I might have made. ]
    Thank you for your sincere help!

    I would use:
    We are also trying to prevent future conflicts from happening.

    Of course- (I forgot) I should have left the subject in the last part like most senteces (me and my silly grammar).
    Still, I don't know if any of them are any good.

    They are not.
