-You know Jim Smith, right? He is related to your wife.
1-Yes, I was also classmates with him.
2-Yes, I was classmates with him as well.
3-Yes, I was classmates with him too.
4-Yes, there is also the fact that I was classmates with him.

Are sentences 1-4 all acceptable in this context?

Gratefully,
Navi.

Yes, but #4 is unnecessarily wordy.

Use/overuse of "as well" is one of my personal pet peeves. So, I would use #'s 1 or 3 and I agree with Rover on #4 as well :lol: (I feel better now)
