  • Hi Luke!!
    It’s my first time to leave a message in here.
    The quiz you made is really good and helpful!! I always have difficulty choosing other or another when I write email.
    My understanding is that
    1. the other
    Use when you choose one of two choices.
    ex) I bought two bags. One is for me and the other is for you.
    2. another
    Use when you choose one of more than two (exclusive)
    ex) I will choose the pink one so please choose another color, such as red, yellow etc.
    Is “another” almost same as “any other”?
    ex) I know you play the piano very well. How about another musical instrument?
    3. other
    Use when I mention unspecified numbers of staff / people
    ex 1.) The only vegetable I don’t eat is carrot. I eat other vegetables (others).
    ex 2.) This area is exclusively for those who purchased the ticket only. Others, please queue up in that line.
    Is my understanding correct?!?!

  • I have something confused between “the other” and “another”.
    Imagine the situation at the case, and the left is defined, choose “the other”, and the left is not defined but not the only one, choose another. Is it correct definition to choose these words? What the difference between them? If you have some explanation, please let me know about it.

  • Thank you
    the other(s) は分かるのですが(残る一つ、ですよね?)
    other と another の区別がスッキリしません。
    Could you please write explanations about it, If you have spare time.

  • 初めは順調だったんですが・・・。
    後半、さっぱり分かりませんでした。
    う~ん、難しかったです。
    60点でした。
    トホホです。
