    Default two simple questions

    hello.

    Is it wrong to say : "John's tall and Tom's too." or not?
    Is it necessary to say "Tom is too", means that we can not use the short form of is in the second part of the sentence.

    Is it wrong to say "This is lesson the second." instead of "This is the second lesson"?

    thanks.

    Is it necessary to say "Tom is too", means that we can not use the short form of is in the second part of the sentence. It would be better.

    Is it wrong to say "This is lesson the second." instead of "This is the second lesson"? Yes.

    thanks.
