    it vs. this

    Dear All,

    Suppose that you have invited guests for dinner and they have a second helping. When they leave you say to your spouse:

    They all had a second helping. It/This means that the food was delicious.

    Which is the better option here?

    Thank you.

    Neither!

    We'd be more likely to say, "They all had a second helping. That means that the food was delicious."
