    Just as there occupations

    Just as there occupations that require college degrees, ...... occupations for which technical training is necessary.

    1. so to there are
    2. so also there are
    3. so there are
    4. so too are there


    Isn't "too" in No.4 redundant? I've heard the inversion style of "so" without too, or also. Something like "so are there" sounds more correct to me.

    Thanks!

    Re: Just as there occupations

    Could you remind us why you are asking these questions? Are you taking a test that you have to turn in to your teacher?

    (The more natural way to say this would be "there are also" but that's not a choice.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Just as there occupations

    I assume that you just accidentally omitted "are" after "there" in the first part of your post. 4 is the only correct answer of those choices.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Just as there occupations

    I'm just preparing for several International exams. No homework. This test comes from Toefl PBT. My question is can we re-write No.4 in this way: so are there.(Without too)

    Yes, that's possible.

    Re: Just as there occupations

    I would have said "no."

    "...there are also..."
    "...so too are there..."
    but not "...so there are..."

    Is this one of those "grammatical but not natural" or do you also find it natural?

    I find it natural enough to be acceptable. Maybe it's just me.
