He offered a trip to New York, Chicago, or Tarzana. She chose the latter. Oh no she didn't. Latter can't be used when there are three (or more) options. It applies only to sentences like He offered a trip to New York or Tarzana, which makes New York the former, Tarzana the latter. When there are more than two people or things mentioned, use last.
