    Demonstrative adjectives or pronoun

    Please help!

    We need to rewire the following sentence, so the subject is first.

    There are two telephone numbers listed for that organization.

    We rewrote the sentence this way.

    That organization has two telephone numbers listed.

    Is the word that a demonstrative adjective or demonstrative pronoun?

    I would have said: Two telephone numbers are listed for that service.

    In your sentence, "that" is an adjective. :wink:
