    Re: ask

    "It" = neutral pronoun (as subject or object): the thing, animal or situation which has already been mentioned:

    This clock is no use. It has no hands
    The dog was sleeping. It was curled into a tight ball.
    What time is it? It is midday.
    I am looking for my purse. Where did you put it?

    "This" determiner, pronoun
    used for a person, object, idea, etc. to show which one is referred to:

    This is my clock.
    This is your dog.
    This is clever, that is not.
    There is no answer to this [question].
