These are two sentences that I have a question about.
- Mt. Fuji is higher than any other mountains in Japan.
- Mt. Fuji is higher than any other mountain in Japan.
I know the second sentence is the correct one, but why can't we use the first sentence? The dictionary says "Do you have any other questions?" and "He doesn't have any other shoes to wear." Using any here we use the plural, so why can't we use it with the first sentence that I questioned you about?
How can I explain to students who are learning English?
