If an abbreviation ends a sentence and is enclosed in single markers, do we also include a second full stop after the ending single quote mark - yes or no? See below.

I was told not to use the word 'etc.'.

Thanks

Is 'etc.'. (with the second full stop at the end of that sentence) correct?

Also, if an ellipsis ends a quoted sentence, do we do the same (terminal punctuation after the ending quote mark below)? Is the sentence below punctuated correctly?
