    some-other -some other

    When you list parts of a group, do you say "some-other -some other" or "some-some other-other"? There seems to be no rule for me.
    =================================
    31 -3. What is the correct order after this? B-C-A

    Everyone knows that dogs make wonderful pets. But many dogs also have different jobs.

    (A) Some other dogs help people keep their homes safe from harmful insects. Once the dogs find the insect nest with their sharp nose, people can have the insects and their nest removed.
    (B) Some dogs, for example, are used by the police. Often these dogs help people in trouble or find people who are lost.
    (C) Other dogs work at airports. They sniff out plants, food, and other things that people are not supposed to bring in from other countries. With their help, these things are found and never enter the country.

    B must come first. After that, either A or C.

    Yes, "other" and "some other" are hard to determine their order. Either seems to be okay, that's what I was worried about.
