    Other/Another/Others

    hello
    i am very confused with the usage of these words
    i am trying to use them here and please correct me if i use them wrongly

    1) I live in a house 3 girls, a British one and another German girl who speaks native English.

    2) There are 5 little boys fighting with each other.

    3) I agree with what you say, but I am not sure what the others may think.

    4) If you find this one not very good, we still have another option for you to consider.

    5) I am afraid that I don't have time right now. Can I answer you another day/ another moment?

    6) Come on! He is just another man who loves your money.

    Thanks a lot!

    1) I live in a house 3 girls, a British one and another German girl who speaks native English. Either you live in a house with three girls, or you are one of three girls sharing a house. If you are the latter, say "I live in a house with two other girls, one is British and the other is a German girl who speaks fluent English".

    2) There are 5 little boys fighting with each other. OK

    3) I agree with what you say, but I am not sure what the others may think. OK

    4) If you find this one not very good, we still have another option for you to consider. OK, but awkwardly said.

    5) I am afraid that I don't have time right now. Can I answer you another day/ another moment? OK but awkwardly said;

    6) Come on! He is just another man who loves your money. OK

    Thanks a lot!
