    Not only.. but also

    Hi everyone, can I use "not only...but also" in the following sentences without "also"



    1- I like not only strawberries but (also) bananas.

    2- We walked through the hills not only when it was sunny, but (also) when it was raining.

    3- The government was not only effective in lowering taxes, but (also) helped to reduce unemployment through careful measures.

    4- It was not only fun, but (also) educational.

    5- They were not only friendly, but (also) helpful.

    All good, but don't put "also" in parentheses.
