Worksheet B would be the correct child support worksheet assuming both children have the same biological parents.
For “number of other children” you put the number of children you have that you do not have with the other parent in which you are trying to determine child support. For example, Mom has 2 children, 1 with Dad A and 1 with Dad B. Mom and Dad A are trying to determine child support for 1 of Mom’s children. The second child whose father is Dad B would be counted in the “number of other children” entry. This is the same for “pre-existing child support.” Only child support obligations that you are required to pay for a child whose child support is not being currently calculated is entered.
