Who is this

Hi. How are (who is this?) and (who is he/she?) different?

You are not sure that male/female. It can also be use to make a sense of lower respect.

You are sure that male/female.

Hi Sara39,

What is your question exactly?

The sentence you posted seems to simply be a formula telling you that you need to insert a name or pronoun inside each set of parentheses:

  • How are John and Mary different?
  • How are John and she different?
  • How are he and she different?
    (- How are they different?)

Some times we ask:Who is this? and some times we ask: who is he or who is she? Are these two forms of questions used in the same situations?

Sara, I think you originally meant to ask:

How are “Who is this?” and “Who is he/she?” different?

Just to let you know, you must use quotation marks in this situation, not brackets.

It can also be use to make a sense of lower respect.
Is the sentence correct?

No, Farner. I can’t work out what you are trying to say there.

It can also be used to make a sense of lower respect.
Now what?

Sorry, but what I think of as ‘lower respect’ seems to bear no relation to the phrases under discussion, so I think we must be reading that sentence differently…

Now could you please answer my question? I have not got it yet!

Hi, Sara39
Let, On a holiday you are at home in rest. Suddenly Someone knocks at your door. Now if you want to know about the strange man without opening the door. Then you have to ask in the following way-
Who is this/it. You can’t ask “Who is she/he?”

Al through I am not an English grammarian , I hope my above explanation will help you to understand the difference you searching for.
