Hey Everyone,

Is there any specific rule for using "each other" instead of "another" or vice versa.

I had come across a question involving these answer choices but the explaination for the answer did not cater to 'each other' or 'another'

If someone knows any details about this, request you to post.

Thanx.

Akhil

p.s. If i come across the question again, I will surely post the same.

from some note:
When two persons are referred in a sentence using each, other should be used.
Incase of three or more people the usage is each …another. Refer SC 1000 # 718

agree, examples are here.

I visited two places for this weekend. First one is los angeles and the other one is santa monica. (there is only one city in addition to los angeles)

The book that I bought in the shop is very bad. Hence I returned got another one. (here there are many books in the shop in addition to first bad one)

Agree with above comments: we should use "Each other" talking about 2 persons while "another" is used when more than two are involved.

Here are simple examples:
1.John and Vera love each other (only two people are involved)
2.In our team we value one another (more than two are involved)

Also, when you say "each other" - you refer to the relation between the two people; when you say "another" - you refer to the third party.
