This and that

Beginners in English learn that we use this to refer to an object close to us, and that to refer to an object further away. This book (here, in my hand etc.) is very good. That one (over there, on the table, in your hand) is not so good. But sometimes these two words are not so easy to use!


Read the following sentences and decide which of the two words this / that is the more usual choice in each case.
