    Also, too and sentences with them

    Are the following sentences correct and natural:
    Does she only sing or also play the piano?
    She not only sings; she also plays the piano.
    She not only sings; she plays the piano too.

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: Also, too and sentences with them

    The second and third work for me. The first is not natural for me. I would say: Does she only sing or does she also play the piano?
