Sir'

I don't like that ice-cream. I don't like this one too.

I think this sentence is not correct .This should be like-----

1. I don't like that ice-cream. I don't like this one.
2. I don't like that ice-cream. I don't like this one either.

Whic one is correct according to you?
---------------------------------------------

If I write a sentence like

1 .Ram is cleverer boy than any other boy in the class.
2. Ram is cleverer than any other boy in the class.

Which one is correct?

-------------------------------

John is the best of all other boys in the class.

is this right? Shall I use "other". Please explain it in detail?

-----------------------------

Shall I wirte "some one" or "someone" ?

is this possible "Eachone ,eachbody,eachthing" like everyone ,everybody,everything

I don't like that ice-cream. I don't like this one either. OK.

Ram is cleverer than any other boy in the class. OK.
Ram is more clever than any other boy in the class. OK.

John is the best of all other boys in the class. (Impossible. John is not one of the group of other boys in the class. There is John, and then there are all other boys, which does not include John. To say that John is the best of something, John must be included in that group.)

John is the best of all the boys in the class. OK. (because John is one of all the boys in the class.)

every, everyone, everybody, everything, everywhere,
some, someone, somebody, something, somewhere,
no, no one, nobody, nothing, nowhere,
any, anyone, anybody, anything, anywhere,
each, each one, each one, each one OR each thing, each place,

Emotion: geeked

>1. I don't like that ice-cream. I don't like this one.
>2. I don't like that ice-cream. I don't like this one either.

All are correct.
For (2), the word "either" is used as an emphasis.

>Which one is correct according to you?
I am not too sure. But it seems "according to" cannot be used with me/you. It is used with a third person (eg John, my order, your instructions).

>1 .Ram is cleverer boy than any other boy in the class.
>2. Ram is cleverer than any other boy in the class.
>Which one is correct?

The first one has a redundant word "boy". Not correct.
The seoncd one is correct:
- Ram is cleverer than any other boy(s) in the class.

Or the best you may consider this one:
Ram is the cleverest (among the boys) in the class.

Rewrite as:
John is the best among all boys in the class.
You have to include yourself in the comparison!!

> Shall I wirte "some one" or "someone" ?
It depends.
But I think you are asking about the word "someone" which means an unknown person. In this sense, it is the best to write it as a word, although "some one" may be narrowly ok.

Although I am not sure if there is a person who will use "some one"(with different meanings!) (NB:maybe these 2 words cannot be used with sense!), I can offer one similar example.

There're differences between "any one"(an unknown entity) and"anyone"(an unknown person).

> is this possible "Eachone ,eachbody,eachthing" like everyone ,everybody,everything
Sorry, impossible.
It is only possible if you writethem separately (eg each one, each body, each thing). But the meaning varies!!
>John is the best of all the boys in the class. OK. (because John is one of all the boys in the class.)
I doubt if the preposition "of" is possible.
Anyway, I'm not sure about that.
The preposition "of" is certainly possible. Emotion: wink Omitting "of" would create ungrammatical sentences here.
