The word "chance" is a noun right? The sentence is "People at a party welcome a chance to make a big impression." And "other" would be a pronoun... right? It says "If you let other people impress you, they will be impressed by your graciousness."

    You're right about "chance" being a noun.

    "Other" occasionally is used as a pronoun -- but not very often.

    Check these definitions to see how "other" is most commonly used. Does that part of speech fit your sentence?

    Chance can also be used as a verb and an adjective. In this case it IS a noun.

    Other in that case would be an adjective.... it describes people.....ie, these people, those people, some people, other people.
