I tried to write a little jquery code showing my thoughts . Please suggest how it looks.
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
$('button#movesubmitbtn').on('click',function(){
var $otherRow = $('div.array-flexible-row table.subquestions-list tr:has("input:text")');
for(var i=0;i<$otherRow.length;i++){
var checkedRadio = $otherRow.eq(i).find('td:not("td.noanswer-item")').find('input:checked').length;
var boxVal = $.trim($otherRow.eq(i).find('input:text').val());
if(((checkedRadio != 0) && (boxVal == "")) || ((checkedRadio == 0) && (boxVal != ""))){
alert('Please review your answer in other specify row.');
return false;
}
break;
}
});
//clear other specify value on click of no answer
$('td.noanswer-item').on('click',function(){
$(this).parent().find('input:text').val('');
});
//uncheck no answer on keydown inside otherspecify box.
$('div.array-flexible-row table.subquestions-list input:text').on('keydown',function(){
$(this).parent().parent().find('td.noanswer-item input:radio').prop('checked',false);
});
});
</script>

Okay, using the "No Answer" survey setting simplifies things a bit and to expand a little on your line of thinking...
  1. Add a class to the "Other" row for styling and manipulation
  2. Use question-specific selectors
  3. Use keyup and change events to on the text inputs (in case someone pastes)
  4. Prevent the click event on the submit button from firing more than once if there are multiple instances of these questions
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">	
 
	$(document).ready(function() {
 
		// Identify the questions
		var thisQuestion = $('#question'+{QID}+'');
		var nextQuestion = $(thisQuestion).nextAll('.text-short:eq(0)');
 
		// Hide the short-text question
		$(nextQuestion).hide();
 
		// Move the hidden text input into the array
		$('th.answertext:last', thisQuestion).append($('input[type="text"]', nextQuestion)).closest('tr').addClass('otherRow');
 
		// Some styling...
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).css({
			'width': '50%'
		});		
 
		// Handle the "Other" radios
		$('input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).on('keyup change',function(event){
			event.stopPropagation();
 
			if($.trim($(this).val()) == '') {
				$('.otherRow input:radio[value!=""]', thisQuestion).prop('checked',false);
				$('.otherRow input:radio[value=""]', thisQuestion).click();
			}
			else {
				$('.otherRow input:radio[value=""]', thisQuestion).prop('checked',false);
			}
		});	
 
		// Handle the "Other" text input
		$('.otherRow input.radio', thisQuestion).on('click',function(event){
			if($(this).attr('value') == '') {
				$('.otherRow input[type="text"]', thisQuestion).val('');
			}
		});
 
		// Validate the "Other" text input(s) on submit
		if($('#movenextbtn, #movesubmitbtn').attr('data-inserted-other') != 'true') { // We're only doing this once on this page
			$('#movenextbtn, #movesubmitbtn').attr('data-inserted-other', 'true').on('click.insertedOther', function (event) {
 
				var otherError = 0;
 
				$('.array-flexible-row .otherRow').each(function(i) {
 
					if(($('input:radio[value!=""]:checked', this).length > 0 && $('input[type="text"]', this).val() == '') || ($('input:radio[value!=""]:checked', this).length == 0 && $('input[type="text"]', this).val() != '')) {
						otherError = 1;
					}
				});
 
				if(otherError == 1) {
					alert('Please review your answer in the "Other" row(s).');
					return false;
				}
			});
		}
	});
</script>

Dear LS Team,

To make it simple, how about make enhancement in limesurvey,
for array question add Option for Other answer like single or multiple question type?

i believe LS team can do that.

I think you have enough information in this thread to accomplish that.
