Question

I’m unsure if I need to put the pronoun at the second part of the sentence when I use ‘not only….but also’. Are both sentences correct, or only one?

(A) Not only are the players cooperative, but they are also very disciplined. 

(B) Not only are the players cooperative, but also very disciplined. 

Thank you!

Answer

(A) Not only are the players cooperative, but they are also very disciplined.

Why is (B) wrong?

“When using not only . . . but also in a sentence, parallelism should be the goal. It means that the words following both parts of this correlative conjunction (i.e., not only and but also) should belong to the same parts of speech. For example, if a verb follows not only, then a verb should also follow but also.”
