    question with 'too/also/as well'

    Dear teachers

    Do these sentences read well?

    After-rain bugs invaved my house.
    Does that also come off where you live?
    Does that come off where you live too?
    Does that come off where you live, too? (different meaning)
    Does that come off where you live as well?

    Thank you

    Re: question with 'too/also/as well'

    Before worrying about "too/also/as well", can you tell us what you think "to come off" means, because it doesn't make any sense in this context? Thanks.

    Re: question with 'too/also/as well'

    I suppose 'to come off' in that context means 'happen'.

    No, it doesn't.
    But assuming it did, any of those alternatives would work. The comma is unnecessary before "too"

    What different meanings had you in mind?

    Re: question with 'too/also/as well'

    I wanted it to be a rhetorical question!
