Interested in Language
A junior high school student asked me a question about English today, and when I told him the answer ,he said I was wrong.
His question goes like this:
Question: What's that?
Alternative Replies: a) That's a pen. b) It's a pen.
My answer was "a)", but the student told me I was wrong and it should be "b)".
As I am not a native English speaker, I really don't know which one is correct. Please tell me.
Thank you in advance.
Thank you, Soup, I understand it now.
I just don't think it's proper to simply give a "Cross" to Answer a) in case such sentence appears on a test paper at a school, do you agree with me?
Max: (pointing) That? That's a pen.
Hope that helps.
Thank you, Soup, it's very helpful to me. I love such discussions that can solve my puzzles that had remained in my mind for long. Thanks again.
You're most welcome.
