    Show it (someone else, for example).

    I have a paper and I want someone to present it to someone else.

    I am talking to A to show it to B: Would it be show it B/show this to B, please?

    Please show this to B. (Polite request)
    Show this to B. (Imperative)
    Show B this. (This is used and understandable in BrE but I probably wouldn't recommend it in an exam or a formal situation.)
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
