Gmatclub Ultimate GMAT Grammar: Other/ Another [#permalink] New post 31 Jul 2012, 03:05
I had a doubt in the topic Other / Another in the gmatclub's Ultimate GMAT Grammar.

1. This cake is delicious. Other cakes are delicious also.
OR
This cake is delicious. Others are delicious also.

(other + plural noun = other cakes: not specific) Since the subject is understood from the first
sentence, you can omit the plural noun “cakes” in the second sentence and pluralize other to
others.


2. These apples are bad. I want the other apples.
OR
These apples are bad. I want the others.

(the other + plural noun = other apples: specific) Since the subject is understood from the first
sentence, you can omit the plural noun “apples” in the second sentence and pluralize the other to
the others.


Kindly explain how, in Example 2, do we get a specific case, while in example 1 we get a non-specific case.

In Example 1, how can we say that "others" is refering to some random cakes and not to some specific ones? if so, what is the thing that makes them non- specific ?

In Example 2, how can we say that "the others" is refering to some specific apples and not to any other random apple? if so, what is the thing that makes them specific?
