    sentence

    I bought an other car.
    Used also as an adj., "other" is right in this case?

    I'll do any job at all.
    She hasn't got any job.
    I was told the second sentence is wrong. why?

    Please.

    I'll do any job at all. I don't think 'do any job' is very commonly said, at least when talking about one's occupation.
    I'll do any work. I'll take any job. "at all" is optional.

    She hasn't got any job. I certainly wouldn't say that. I, and I think most people, would say 'She doesn't have a job.'
    I was told the second sentence is wrong. why? It just sounds bad.
    Please.

    I asked about whether the word "other" can be used in this case or not, since "other" used also as an adj.?

    Other can not be used here.
    I do not like this car.I like the other one.
