    Each (one) and every one

    Good day everyone. I'd like to know whether or not these sentences are grammatically correct. I ask for your help.

    "I had been invited to four parties and went to each."(one) - one is optional.
    "I had been invited to four parties and went to every one." - one is obligatory.

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: Each (one) and every one

    They're both grammatically correct (on the assumption there was a good reason for using the past perfect at the beginning, rather than the simple past) and you're right about the optional/obligatory use of "one" in both.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
