    I am not a teacher but a native speaker I might say;

    Where is the other pair to this shoe?
    Where is the other shoe to this pair?

    I have lost the other pair to this shoe/sock.
    I've lost the other shoe/sock to this pair.

    The sock is incomplete cos one is missing.
    Not something we would ever say or write as the sock itself is not incomplete.

    This pair of socks is incomplete as one is missing or
    I can't make a pair of these socks/shoes one's missing
    This is spoken British English.
    Cos is a slang term not usually written down its a short form of "because"


    I hope this helps.
