    as well cleaned the bedroom

    Which are correct:

    1) I swept the kitchen. I as well cleaned the bedroom.

    2) I swept the kitchen. I cleaned the bedroom as well.

    3) I swept the kitchen. I too cleaned the bedroom.

    4) I swept the kitchen. I cleaned the bedroom too.


    5) I swept the kitchen. I also cleaned the bedroom.
    6) I swept the kitchen. I cleaned the bedroom also.

    It seems to me that '1' and '3' do not work. However '5' does.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    I agree.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    5) I swept the kitchen. I also cleaned the bedroom. Yes.
    6) I swept the kitchen. I cleaned the bedroom, also. Yes, but it's unnatural.

    Notice the commas!

    I find this one natural, though I'd be more likely to say too. I swept the kitchen. I cleaned the bedroom, also.
    I am not a teacher.
