The businessman uses three cell phones of different brands. One is Nokia, _____ is Motorola and
the third is Samsung.
我可以問一下在此場合中為什麼要使用 one 而不是 another 呢？
因為以前都是背「one is...，another is....，and the other is .....」的公式，所以才一時間選another

恰巧正在閱讀美國廿世紀初小說家F. Scott Fitzgerald 所寫的知名小說"Tender is The Night"中，在第八章(Penguin Popular Classics版本的第41頁)，看到也有相同用法：
One was the telephone girl....; another was the making of .......; a third was a consequent intensification....

One… the other (兩個之中的另一個)
One… another (兩個以上其中的另一個)
而提到三個則以 One… one… and the third 為合理

One more; an additional: had another cup of coffee.
Distinctly different from the first: took another route to town.
Some other: put it off to another day.
Being a single entity, unit, object, or living being.
Characterized by unity; undivided: They spoke with one voice.
Of the same kind or quality: two animals of one species.
Forming a single entity of two or more components: three chemicals combining into one solution.
Being a single member or element of a group, category, or kind: I'm just one player on the team.
Being a single thing in contrast with or relation to another or others of its kind: One day is just like the next.
Occurring or existing as something indefinite, as in time or position: He will come one day.

所以三個時, 使用one, 而樓上的大大或許在解釋上有些需要更正, 因為僅有兩個時, 另一個才會使用the other

只有二個的時候才用 another, 這題有三個, 所以用 one.
