About “ autre chose and quelque chose d’autre”

Bonjour Aurélie et Cécile,

I have 2 questions.

1/ As your explanation, we have 2 different ways to say about a same thing: something else.Thus , why is it just nearly correct when I say” ils ont besoin d’occuper leurs jours à autre chose.”The right answer in the test is” ils... à quelque chose d’autre.”

It is diffidult for me to unsderstand.

2/ How about to say “autre chose “ in plural? E.g.: I’d like to choose the other things?

Merci beaucoup,

Truc Thanh

This question relates to:
French lesson "Autre chose / quelque chose d'autre = Something else (indefinite pronouns)"
