Vote for B. "The" makes the idea more specific since we are talking about specific cars.

I think it is C.

INHO: 'The other' means the second when we speak about two.
In the above case, there is no indication that there are only two groups of cars. Some can be expensive, others are less so, still others are overly expensive, and so on.

Hi

I agree with Stolyar about the answer C.

Other + plural noun (more of the set)

The other + plural nown (the rest of the set)

Other is nonspecific while the other is specific.

To tell the truth it is not quite clear whether we need specific or nonspecific usage, but anyway I tend to think that the C is correct.

to me "E" makes more sense....

It makes more sense to be specific about the term "car" rather than reply on just "others" which is a vague term..

So i would go in for "E". what do you guys think ???

E is too long; thus, it is not ideal from the test point of view.

I think it is E, this is because the CARS in the answer differentiates from the local centers and the cars.

How abt this...

My best friend has recently read in a local newspaper that some of "the cars" sold at local centres are expensive , while "the others " are less so .

Does this make sense....I go for B.
