a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 2
 
'Not only' will be used before 'coming' as 'but also' is used before 'going'.

'Not only...but also' is used to connect two objects, verbs, gerunds.

For e.g. i. Not only Ranveer but also Ranbir is dancing.
ii. I have invited not only Rohan but also Mohan.
iii. She not only reads but also writes.

The correct sentence here would be: Mr. Tomar stopped not only coming here but also going to any place which is related to the accident.
