I have the following 2 sentences:
1- I did not see any other of classmates, except/but Michael.
2- I did not see any of classmates, except/but Michael
For the first sentence can we understand that the word other converts the expression in inclusive meaning that Michael is a classmate too?
For the second sentence, since the word other is missing, then does it mean that Michael is not a classmate?
Thanks in advance for any help.
