Is it not necessary to have a verb to accompany the adjective for l'autre ?
In a question it was used : "Ils sont différents: l'un est petit et l'autre est grand."
In the example it wasn't :Tom et Maxime sont très différents: l'un est calme et l'autre ( ) hyperactif.
Is there a distinction?
If you don't repeat the verb, the same verb as used previously is implied. Sometimes, for clarity or stylistic reasons, the verb is repeated. There is no inherent grammatical difference.
