    Default pronoun

    Please teach me which would you choose.

    A:Iím going to invite a few of my teammates to the party.
    B:You canít invite just a few. ( ) will be angry.
     
    In this case, which one do you think is the better answer, and why?
    (Others or The others)

    B: The other team-mates will be angry. (OK)

    Shorten the phrase 'The other team-mates': delete the plural noun 'team-mates', then add plural -s to the adjective 'other' to make it a noun.
