3. These pants don’t fit well. Let me try ____________________ ones.

The above questions are from gmat grammar book-exercise 4(using other, another)

so far what i learned from this exercise is

ANOTHER, OTHERS - It is used to non specific group.
THE OTHER-It is used for a specific group

can any body tell me how to recognise whether specific sentence refers to specific group or non specific group

[Reveal] Spoiler:
another, other

Well, I'll take a crack at it for you.

1. This pie is fantastic! Can I have __________________ piece?

This sentence implies that there is a pie consisting of multiple pieces. The hungry pie monster would like an additional piece of the pie, however the specific piece of the pie is irrelevant to his or her pie consumption desires. Therefore, he or she would like another piece [of the pie].

2. These pants don’t fit well. Let me try ____________________ ones.

This sentence implies that someone is trying on pants. We don't actually know how many pairs of pants that he or she is testing. However, this sentence implies that for this person, there are basically two groups of pants: those that don't fit well, and all other pants (interesting logic: there could be pants that fit kind of well, that fit really well, etc, but this sentence implies binomial groups). So, the person would like to try pants from the other group.
