Hello group,

I am sending two links to someone to review but I think he might be already familiar with the second one. Can I say "you might be already familiar with the second one" OR "you might be already familiar with the latter one"? Thank you.

    :thumbsup: Agreed.

    Former and latter are usually only used in a written text, where you’ve just mentioned two different things and want to refer back to either the first or the second of them.
