    Re: adverb vs. conjunction

    Given the comma, it must be 'Also', although 'I have invited him and [I have invited] his sister' would sound better. Personally, I'd probably say 'I have invited him. I've invited his sister too' but that's not an option .

    Peace be with you, I think it will be better if we rephrase it in order to avoid repetition.
    I invited him and his sister.

    Thank you very much for your answer.

    I cannot rephrase. The sentences are part of a test paper found in a grammar book. It would have been much easier for me to rephrase but this was not and is not an option. It`s a request stated by a test paper.

    Thank you again
