Can one use

1) Tom didn't help me. Harry also didn't help me.
2) Tom didn't help me. Harry too didn't help me.
3) Tom didn't help me. Harry as well didn't help me.



4) Tom didn't help me. Harry didn't help me also.
5) Tom didn't help me. Harry didn't help me too.
6) Tom didn't help me. Harry didn't help me as well.


instead of:


Tom didn't help me. Harry didn't help me either.

Gratefully,
