Demonstrative Pronouns.


Look at the following sentences:

This is Thanu’s book. (Singular)
These are Sanda’s scissors. (Plural)
That is Kali’s hat.
Those are Tommy's tennis shoes.
This dress of a Sri Lankan is more picturesque than that Of an Englishman.

Here the words this, these, that and those are used instead of nouns to point out certain things. They are called Demonstrative Pronouns, because they demonstrate or show things. 

This and these are used in pointing out things close by; that and those point out things further away.

Sometimes this means ‘the former’ and that, ‘the  latter’.
E.g.:
He tried both to win the race and to break the record; this he did, but that was beyond him.

The numeral adjective One is also used as a pronoun, very often in sentences in which demonstrative pronouns are used. It is used in the plural also. 
E.g.:
If that pencil is not a good one, I have some better ones here.

None means not one, and is used both as a singular and a plural. 
E.g.:
You said there were some apples here, but there are none. 
I am looking for string, but there is none to be found. 

Now, look at the following sentences:

The sand in this bottle is a bit of England. 
Those bottles of perfume are French. 
That piano is badly out of tune. 
I sent off those parcels a week ago.

Here this, these, that and those are followed by nouns, and so they are called Demonstrative Adjectives.
