Consider the following situation: two men are in the museum, a tour guide has come up to them. One man says to the other: It's our tour guide./This is our tour guide. Are both variants correct from the point of view of a native speaker of English in this particular situation?
'it' is reserved for inanimate things. Animals are borderline beings. Sometimes they are referred to by he or she.
Okay, it is a bit difficult for me fully to understand this now, but I will remember your words
It is true for the situation that you knock the door of someone you know and when he/she answers the door by asking you who you are , you say "it's me"
