    Default as well/also/too

    -You know Jim Smith, right? He is related to your wife.
    1-Yes, I was also classmates with him.
    2-Yes, I was classmates with him as well.
    3-Yes, I was classmates with him too.
    4-Yes, there is also the fact that I was classmates with him.

    Are sentences 1-4 all acceptable in this context?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Yes, but #4 is unnecessarily wordy.

    Use/overuse of "as well" is one of my personal pet peeves. So, I would use #'s 1 or 3 and I agree with Rover on #4 as well (I feel better now)
