    something else as well

    Which are correct:
    1) You have to put something else on that table as well.
    2) You have to put something else on that table too.
    3) You also have to put something else on that table.
    4) You have to put something else on that table also.

    I think '3' has a different meaning to the other ones. It seems to follow a list of things you have to do, adding another item to that list.

    These sentences have quite a different meaning to:
    5) You have to do something else on that table.
    Don't they?

    '5' implies that you have to remove what you have put there and replace it with something else, does it not?

    Gratefully,

    Re: something else as well

    With the first batch, the person might only be placing one thing on the table in addition to the things placed there by other people, except #3. #5 could refer to chopping vegetables.

    Re: something else as well

    Thank you very much, Tdol,

    I made a mistake. '5' had to be:
    5) You have to put something else on that table.

    I really don't know how I messed that up.

    I think '3' means : In addition to the others, you also have to put something on the table.

    Is that correct?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
