Which one is more correct in the following context: 'it' or 'this' ?

John‚ have you heard that the government has decided to cut fifty four thousand trees for a new project? Is [it / this] a correct decision? What do you think?


1 Answer 1


Is [it / this] a correct decision?

In order of preference:

  1. Do you think that's the right decision?

  2. Is that a good decision?

  3. Is that a good idea?

  4. Do you think what they are doing is a good idea?

  5. Is this a good idea?

Just from my perspective, the choice of the word "it" sounds slightly like a foreign person is talking.
