hello.

Is it wrong to say : "John's tall and Tom's too." or not?
Is it necessary to say "Tom is too", means that we can not use the short form of is in the second part of the sentence.

Is it wrong to say "This is lesson the second." instead of "This is the second lesson"?

thanks.

Your first sentence should read "John's tall and Tom too." And the second sentence should be "This is the second lesson.".
