    For me there are two meanings:

    1) These cups belong to us. Those cups belong to other people.

    other people = others
    Those (cups) are other people's (cups) = Those (cups) are others' (cups) [Answer C]

    2) These cups are ours. Those are other cups. [cups that don't belong to us, but not necessarily anyone else]

    Those (cups) are other cups = Those (cups) are others [Answer A]

    those are others
