Reply to "the other entrance"

Hi, Azz,

a. Use the other entrance at the east side of the building.


Is there on entrance at the east side of the building or two entrances? Are we being told to use the entrance on the east side, or to use the second entrance on the east side?

That is ambiguous. There may be only one, or more than one entrance on that side.

If there is only one entrance on the east side, should one write
b. Use the other entrance, at the east side of the building.
c. Use the other entrance, which is at the east side of the building.

?

I'd probably use (c) or (d):

d. Use the other entrance, the one on the east side of the building.
