他 sometimes appears in the form 〜の
ほか
にも. The meaning is essentially the same as the basic usage of ほか to mean 'in addition to'.
The に creates the adverbial form for modifying a verb. For example, both of these are correct, and mean the same thing:
  • ほかに方法がない (here, the ほかに is modifying the verb ない)
  • ほかの方法がない (here, the ほかの is modifying the noun 方法)
The additional も is known as the 'binding particle' in Japanese, and invites the listener to imagine more examples than specifically listed or actually seen etc.
