    Re: this is vs. it is.

    You would use "This is my mom" when you introduce your mother to someone or perhaps when showing someone a photo of your mum.
    You would use "It is my mom" in response to the question "Who is that?" The question might be asked by someone who is pointing at a woman either in a photograph or somewhere in a room.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
