  • She is a singer.
  • She is an actress.

If I transform this sentence into "both--and" structure, which one is better to use, the sentence #1 or #2?

  1. She is both a singer and actress.

  2. She is both a singer and an actress.

    There is no difference in meaning between the two, and neither is more idiomatic than the other. Any preference for one or the other is merely a matter of personal taste. – P. E. Dant Sep 22 '16 at 6:58

"The second is better." – Lawrence

Agreed. The second one looks more complete and grammatical.

The choice depends on personal preference and the style of speaking/writing.
