    Re: asking of using

    Another is any unspecified one of several items: I have six pencils; if one breaks, I'll use another.

    The other is the specified alternative of two items only: I have only two umbrellas; if I lose one, I'll still have the other.

    Others is more than one (but unspecified) of several options: I have a lot of friends in this town, but if I move to Chicago, I'll make others.

    The others is more than one of several specified options: I have a bowl of cherries; the ones on the top are ripe, and the others are still green.
