As Charles Darwin observed, natural selection operates whenever individuals of one
genetic composition are better at reproducing than that of others
A. that of others
B. the other
D. those of another
E. that of the next
First of all E is out without any dilemma.
Second, we have used comparative form "better" so, "another" is out. Means C and D are out. Use "one...another" while comparing more than two items.
Third, other Vs Others,
that of others => individuals of one genetic composition are better than that of other genetic compositions
the other=> other compares to whom? other individuals
or other genetic composition?
can refer to both singular as well as plural.
My choice is A.
Would like to know OA.
