    Re: some other / any other

    Your sentence compares television to all other inventions and declares it the most harmful. Therefore, you must use any other. If you say some other, you mean that some are less harmful and some are not.

    Re: some other / any other

    Thank you.

    What about "every"? Would it give the same meaning as "any" in this sentence?
