I was reading this question - "Is this sentence grammatically correct? (compare the social life in x neighborhoods with those in y neighborhoods)" and thought about a few different structures to this one.
Well, the OP there asks whether is it okay to use "those" to substitute the objects.
I would like to ask whether we can also use "ones" instead of "those" to substitute objects:
- I want to compare the batch of apples from Abkhazia to ones from Kazakhstan.
- I want to compare the batch of apples from Abkhazia to those from Kazakhstan.
Does using "ones" instead of "those" make anything change? When is it more suitable to use "ones" and when "those"?
I would also like to know if we can (and whether it is correct to) use both words "those ones":
- I want to compare the batch of apples from Abkhazia to those ones from Kazakhstan.
Should there also be a definite article before "ones"?
