Yesterday, I met one of my friends. Then, I met another one. This (another friend) looked happy and told me good news.

Is it correct to use "This another friend"? If no, how to refer to the other friend?

  • You can't say "this another friend", because friend is a countable noun, so it needs exactly one determiner, and both this and another are determiners.

You could say:

Yesterday, I met one of my friends. Then, I met another one. This other friend looked happy and told me good news.

Or you could have said:

Yesterday, I met one of my friends. Then, I met another friend who looked happy and told me good news.

You could phrase it like this;

Yesterday, I met one of my friends. Then, I met another one. This friend looked happy and told me good news.

The sentences could be more fluent by rephrasing like this:

Yesterday, I met one of my friends. Then, I met another one, who looked happy and told me some good news.
