    Smile Now I get it!

    Now I get it! Thanks.
    Now I get the hang of it! Thanks.


    If I'd like to express my gratitude to someone who has solve my problem for me and inform them that it's crystal clear now, could I use either one of the above two expressions?
    By the way, if there are more than one points or questions, should I say the followings instead?

    Now I get them!
    Now I get the hang of them!

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Now I get it!

    angliholic,

    Yes, the following are used correctly:

    Now I get it! Thanks.
    Now I get the hang of it! Thanks.

    When you get it, or get the hang of it, you are expressing an understanding of the situation. It really doesn't matter if more than one question or point is involved.
    You could use Now I get them! Now I get the hang of them! but a better response for more than one might be I understand your questions or Your points/suggestions make complete sense to me!

    Re: Now I get it!

    'Now I get it'/'Now I get the hang of it' is OK as a reference to plural things explained.

    'Now I get [the hang of] them' would be acceptable if the one thing you had had explained was in the plural; 'Could you explain subordinate clauses? ...[EXPLANATION]...Now I get them'. But the singular would be more likely here too. (Some teachers might prefer to avoid the plural altogether.)
