    They are / it is / Those are

    1) It is a stone. (means only one stone)
    2) They are stones. (means more than one stone)

    Are the above sentences correct in grammar?
    ************************************************** ***************

    3) Those are stones.
    4) They are stones.

    What are the differences between 3) and 4) ?

    ************************************************** **************


    Thank you.
