    Default not only

    Hi,

    I know there are a world of questions wbout 'not only, but aslo', but I have been searching the right answers to these senteces. Unfortunately, I couldn't find them. Could you please check if the sentences are OK or not?

    1- Not only did she apologize but (also) sent me a card.

    2- He’s not only funny, but also he’s intelligent.

    3- He’s not only funny, but he’s also intelligent.

    4- She is not only a great runnder, but also plays amazing music.

    Thanks.
