    A. two other B. two another C. more two D. another two
    The key opts for D,but I couldn't understand why A isn't appropriate here.So I was wondering whether anyone could help me with that. Thank you.

    A and D are both possible, if you change "have" to "had". Otherwise the whole question is wrong. It's a bad test question.
