    Smile Sam is better than any other student/s in his class.

    Sam is better than any other student/s in his class.


    Should I use student or students in the above? Thanks.

    Re: Sam is better than any other student/s in his class.

    Angli,

    I would go with:
    Sam is better than any other student in his class.

    Do you know a lot of phrasings that use 'any other...' followed by a plural?
    Of course it is implied that he is better than all other students, but the phrasing is more like 'There is not one single student better than Sam...'

    Regards,

    Thomas
