DEMONSTRATIVE ADJECTIVE

Definition :
This Adjective straight=away points out the person or thing concerned

The four words this, that, these and those are called demonstratives. When they are followed by some other word (especially a noun) in a noun phrase, they are demonstrative determiners. We use this and these to point to people or things near us. You use that and those to point to people or things that are farther from us.

e.g.

These are the times that try men’s souls
That boy is intelligent
Those cows are white
