    Cool , but wide, too.

    (a)The Nile is not only a long river, but wide, too.
    (b) The Nile is not only a long river, but wide.
    (c)The Nile is not only a long river, but also wide.
    Which one is correct? If (a) is correct, why?

    Default Re: , but wide, too.

    I wouldn't use any of the choices given. Perhaps:
    The Nile is not only long, but it is also wide.

    Or:

    The Nile is not only a wide river, but it is also a wide one.
