ANOTHER / OTHERS
- Where are the others photos?
The another boy was smaller
When other is used as an adjective , it cannot have plural form. Others is only used as a pronoun, to mean 'other ones' or 'other people.'
-Where are the other photos?
-Have you got any other colours?
-Some metals are magnetic and others aren’t.
-Can you tell the others that I’ll be late?
*ANOTHER can be used in the sense of ‘an additional’, ‘an extra’.
Can I have another pint of beer, please?
Another can also be used in this way before a plural expression beginning with a number or few.
--- Another three pints, please.
--- I’ll be away for another few weeks...
