Not Only But Also Grammar Subject Verb Agreement

«The net worth method is used not only to evaluate investment projects that generate inflows, but also to evaluate investment projects that reduce costs.» Writers generally, but not always, use both parts of the set, i.e. (1) not only and (2) but (also). The first part is sometimes written not only or not only, while the second part is often seen in forms, but . . but… That, too. These variants offer different nuances, but not very different meanings. There are several options. The easiest way is to move «not only» to «Aslam»; Everything else is left. Not only is this article quite long and detailed, but it also lacks images, so I folded it and divided it into three general sections: use, parallelism, opinions.

For example, Joseph not only did his homework, he also watched television. What about a phrase such as «not only him, but I am also part of it», you would use it in this case or completely change the structure of the sentences? Controversy is affecting not only the sale, but also the confidence of shareholders. Not only does the controversy hurt the sale, but it also undermines shareholder confidence. [subject] not only [verb, noun], but also [verb, noun] For not only a closer look at . . . . but (also) in the context of parallelism and sentence balance, look at the following example: «The article is based not only on a long interview with Kidd, but also on discussions with other characters… Great subject…

But I have my doubts. Is it possible that «not only» appears independently in a sentence, without «but (also)» somewhere in the same sentence? You see, I used this phrase in one of my writings: not only are people willing to give up with their cars, but they are also more eager to buy new sustainable cars and use them to increase their standard of living. Now I understand that they are indeed contradictory. Not only are people willing to use their cars more, but they are also more eager to buy new long-life cars and use them to improve their standard of living. 20. Last rule: Remember, only the subject acts on the verb! Everything else doesn`t matter. That is, not only [verb, noun], but also [Noun]. Many readers do not notice that the correlated parts do not match, some notice, but it does not matter, and others notice and care a little, or care a lot.
