    I don't want to hear it/this/that any more.

    Hi,

    "I don't want to hear it/this/that any more."

    Can I say either it / this / that ? Are they all correct?
    Where is the difference?

    Thanks.

    In the right context, they could all be used.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That could place some distance between the speaker and the thing heard, which could be temporal, but not necessarily so. Could you give us an example of where you would use it?

    Re: I don't want to hear it/this/that any more.

    Here is the context:

    2 Policemen got stucked with their car. They ordered a replacement car from the police station close to. After they called, they wait for about an hour, nothing happens. So the chief officer calls again and hears, that they couldn't manage to get a replacement car until now. The policeman on the other line starts to justify. The chief officer doesn't want to hear these excuses and has enough of it, so he is saying: "I don't want to hear it anymore!" (... You will be held responsible for this! - and hangs up)
