Hi,

Please suggest me some logical answer or a grammar rule which rectifies this problem:

I think this is correct:

Nick: I am also going to do an internship so that when I leave school, I (complete, not only) will not only have completed over 13 business courses, but I (work, also) will also have worked in the real world.

But one content writer in my team thinks:


  1. Nick: I am also going to do an internship so that when I leave school, I (complete, not only) …will have not only completed…………… over 13 business courses, but I (work, also) …will have also worked…….. in the real world.


  2. I have marked his answer a wrong. Is that ok, or not!!

His version is perfectly all right. In fact I'd say that it's more acceptable than the first because he has not split the verb structure.

Hi,

Can you Please suggest a me some logical answer or a grammar rule which rectifies this problem:

I think this is correct:

Nick: I am also going to do an internship so that when I leave school,

I (complete, not only) will [not only] have completed over 13 business courses, but I (work, also) will also have worked in the real world.

But one content writer in my team thinks:


  1. Nick: I am also going to do an internship so that when I leave school,
  2. I (complete, not only) …will have [not only ]completed…………… over 13 business courses, but I (work, also) …will have also worked…….. in the real world.

  3. I have marked his answer a wrong. Is that ok, or not!!

  5. The only difference between the two versions is the placement of the "not only, but also" structure in the sentences.

    Grammatically, Both are acceptable in my opinion.

Um... I think the prefect tense structure was split up in both cases anyhow. I feel that it's a matter of tone and style preference.
