    Question Its and they-they bite?!

    Hi guys I would like to know if this is right- if was talking about one ant I say “IT’S very small” but if it was a group of ants can I say “THEY are very small”
    Anything or any animal that’s a group of them?

    Thank you.

    Regards,

    ROUKAYA.

    Yes, exactly, one thing; it is, more than one; they are.
