What is the use of "on"?

On is invariable indefinite personal pronoun which occurs only as subject. The verb used with "on" is always in the third person singular form.
e.g. On doît être prudent sur l'autoroute.
NOTE
- In conventional French, ''on'' replaces ''nous'' and can also be used to replace ''tu'' and ''vous'' (often to express irony)
e.g On ne s'est pas vus depuis longemps.
Note that if ''on'' replaces a plural pronoun, adjectives and past participles referring to ''on'' agree in gender and number with the group of people ''on'' replaces. The verb, however, is always in the third person.
- After certain monosyllables ending in pronounced vowel sound, such as ''et, où, ou, si, que'' '' l' '' is frequently used before ''on'' for phonetic reasons in the written language. This '' l' '' has no meaning and its use is optional.
e.g. On peut si l'on veut.
- ''On'' is often used to avoid a passive construction.
e.g. On a construit la maison en 1990.
- The object pronoun which corresponds to ''on'' is ''te'' or ''vous''
e.g Aux États-Unis, on t'appelle par le prénom.

What os tshe use of "autre(s)"?

Autre(s) is both an adjective and a pronoun. It is always preceded by a determiner.
- As an indefinite adjective, "autre" means "other". It is directly followed by a noun with which it agrees in gender and number.
e.g. mon autre voiture
NOTE:
The plural of "l'autre" is "les autres", the plural form of "un(e) autre" is "d'autres".
e.g. J'ai d'autres problèmes.j
- As an indefinite pronoun, "autre" is not followed by a noun and means "other one" in the singular and "others", or "other ones" in the plural.
e.g. Je n'ai trouvé qu'une chaussette. Où est l'autre?
NOTE:
"En" must be used when the pronoun "autre" is the direct object in the sentence and if it stands alone.
The pronoun "autres" is sometimes placed after "nous" and "vous" to indicate a special group of people. In this context, "autres" is not translated into English.
e.g. Nous autres Français... (We Frenchmen...)
"Autre(s)" can be used in connection with "l'un(e)" or "les uns" expressing a contrast.
e.g. Elle a deux fils, l'un est blond, l'autre est roux.
"Autre" can be part of the expressions "l'un(e) l'autre, l'un(e)+preposition+l'autre, les un(e)s les autres, les un(e)s+preposition+les autres" expressing "each other".
e.g. Ils se regardent l'un l'autre.

- "Tout" can be followed directly by a noun without a determiner, meaning "every, all, any" in the singular (synonym: chaque), and meaning "all" in the plural
e.g Tout espoir n'est pas perdu.
- "Tout" can be followed by a determiner + noun, meaning "whole, entire, all" in the singular and "all, every" in the plural.
e.g. tout le temps
b) as an indefinite pronoun,
- "tout" is used in its masculine singular form meaning "everything, all". The pronoun "tou" can be subject, object, or the object of a preposition in the sentence.
e.g. Tout est possible
- "tout" is used in its masculine and feminine plural forms (tous, toutes) meaning "all, everyone". When "tous" is a pronoun, the final "s" is pronounced. [tus]
e.g. Tous sont venus or Ils sont tous venus.
c) as and adverb "tout" is not indefinite
It modifies an adjective, adverb or past participle, and means "very, all, quite, completely". The adverb "tout" is invariable (like all other adverbs) except before feminine adjectives and past participles starting with a consonant or an "h aspiré'', where the adverb ''tout'' agrees with the subject like an adjective.
