Subject :IEO    Class : Class 8

Fill in the blanks using suitable indefinite pronouns :
Some are born great; ___________ achieve greatness.

A some
B any
C no
D other


Why can't I write 'some' in the blank ? Could someone please explain this to me ?

Ans 1:

Class : Class 8
It should be 'others'. As the total no. of great people are made of the people who are born great and those who achieve greatness

Ans 2:

Class : Class 8
No the answer is some as it is one of the quotations said by William Sakespeare.

Hi, I think you can't write 'some' in the blank because the sentence already states of some who are born great . Now, excluding them, the others who are great ,achieve their greatness. Hence the right answer should be others.
