could 'sowieso' replace "sonst auch" here?

I thought it could, but DL marked me wrong.

Where does "auch" fit in here? Wouldn't the sentence work without it?

I think "Die Kinder haetten es sowieso herausgefunden" would be a correct response as well?

Could these work:

  1. "Die Kinder hätten es jedenfalls erfahren."
  2. "Die Kinder würden es sonst auch erfahren haben"

Also, what about "Die Kinder hätten es auf jeden Fall erfahren."?
