1) There are five people, other than John, who can do the job.
Can John do the job, or not?

2) There are a lot of people, other than John, that I would like to do the job.
Would I like John to do the job, or not?

Hello, Navi—In each case, we can't tell whether John can do the job. The meaning can be either that there are others who can do it (in which case John can do the job) or that there are people who are not John (who are other than John) who can do the job (in which case we can't tell whether John can do it).
