Wait for another reply. ('another' refers to one more reply. Therefore, 'reply', 'not replies' should be used.)
«"another three apples" and "three other apples" Do they mean exactly the same?»

Almost!

"Another" is used with "three apples" here because they are treated a single object.

Well, compare these:

1. Let's wait for another bunch of replies.
2. Let's wait for another three replies.

"Bunch" and "three" act similarly here — they refer to a group of items in a singular way: Let's wait for antother group of replies.

3. Let's wait for another three minutes.]
4. The car was moving at an insane 120 m/h.

Hi

Three minutes from the third example are also treated as a single object?

OK, I think I get it, though it's a bit strange for me Emotion: smile

Thanks
«Three minutes from the third example are also treated as a single object?»

Yes, like a single object. Namely — a single period of time.

Have fun!
