Below is the final 16 draw
https://worldtabletennis.com/teamseventInfo?subEvt=MTEAM---&selectedTab=Draws&eventId=2535

Go to the results page for final standing after first stg
https://worldtabletennis.com/teamseventInfo?selectedTab=Draws&eventId=2535&groupStandings=true

In the above page the 16 advancing teams are marrked with symbol at the end.

I was curious how the third team was chosen
On the men's side it is two teams India & England
On women's side it is Hungary, Korea, Czechia & Romania

I was wondering how these above teams were chosen to advance only from certain groups but third team from other groups were not chosen.
I am sure there is an explanation somewhere on WTT pages but I could not find it.

I know they did not have the initially planned 40 teams were not there
8 groups of 5 would have given equal 2 teams from each group

I am not sure, but i read or heard somewhere that the teams were chosen according to their WR ranking (same than used for seedings).
the WR team ranking is based itself on the team members WR ranking (taking their average ? considering the 3rd best ranked player ? not sure...)

i'm interested in the answer as well

Same reason there is a Virginia and a West Virginia.

rather than starting a new thread since this is also a wtttc clarification, does anyone know how it's determined which individual players get matched up against each other?
