    There are two models of scooter in this showroom. Would you like this one or the other one? If you would like another model, we will have to go to a different showroom.

    Re: other vs another

    I bought another car.
    I bought an other(adj.)car.

    Is it ok with the second sentence? Please.

    Re: other vs another

    I bought an other(adj.)car.

    Since "other" can be used as adj., it just likes: I bought a blue car/ I bought a new car. Why can't it say: an other car?

    An other car is not a type of car. If you want to talk about a car different from the one you have or have been discussing say another car.
