How do you know if it is andere or anderes?

I think it's because it simplifies to "es ist anderes" anderes for Nom. Neutral

Hints for "else": "sonst", "anderenfalls" not accepted.

why is it a mistake to say "Das ist jemand anderes" instead of "Es ist..."?

I believe it is because "das" is saying "that," when the question is looking for "it," or "es."
