An object is one of the five major elements of clause structure. The other four are subject, verb, adjunct and complement.

what is the grammatical form, function and meaning of "other" in the context?

Why do we need "the" before "other" ?

"Other" is an adjective modifying the pronoun "four".

"The" is needed because the items mentioned are the only others.

If you study defined article, you will get it more easily.

Quick response:

"The" implies that they are unique, or as the name says: Defined.
