    these vs them

    Which one is correct?

    The enclosed attachment contains the screenshots of the case laws which can be considered. Though many of them are not relevant.

    Neither is correct as written. "Though many of these/them are correct" is not a sentence.

    It should be written "The enclosed attachment contains the screenshots of the case laws which can be considered, though many of them/these are not relevant."

    In every case you use "they", you could use "them"
