What is the difference between other and others?
Hi Jackson

Other usually needs a noun after it:
I met two other people.
No other book will do.
This is the other book I told you about.
There may be some other correct answers.

Others has a plural s and thus can't have a noun after it:
Some like coffee, others prefer tea. (Or: Some like coffee, other people prefer tea.)
Only John, Sam and Bill have arrived! Where are the others?

I didn't like the other one.(there is one alternative)

I didn't like the others(There are more than one alternative)
