    The sentences below are grammatically correct. However, my doubt is: If I ommit the noun, supposing it's implied (if I'm holding the object or clearly poiting at it, for example).

    1) Whose book is it/this? (it's ok)

    2) Whose is it? / Whose is this? (is it possible?)

    Thank you.

    Re: Whose


    'This' is more likely, unless you have mentioned the object before:

    Whose is this?
    I have just found this. Whose is it?
