Des autres vs d'autres vs les autres

Okay?...So if you are speaking about "the" other options then des autres is correct?  And if it is about other options then d'autres?  Or if you are talking about specific options right in front of you is it then les autres?  I sometimes think French was conceived in order to confuse all other non-native speakers!  Please try again to explain.

Thank you.
