    if you are good that doesn't mean that others are also good ..

    pls tell me whats right and when to use that

    1) if you are good that doesn't mean that others are also good
    OR
    2) if you are good that doesn't mean that other people are also good
    OR
    3) if you are good that doesn't mean that other are also good ( I use this mostly)

    i am just confused about the use of others.

    I'm afraid that you 'mostly' use the only one that's wrong. 'Others' (in this context) means the same as 'other people', so 1 and 2 are both right.
