  5. Is it possible to say それ車は彼の車です。instead of その車は彼の車です。?

      Nope, because それ acts like a “Noun”. But その acts like a “adj”. although they are pronouns.

  6. I have a question please 🙂
    What’s the difference between どのand どれ?

    Is the first one only being said when comparsation of something already mentioned? Like どの車は好きですか?or どの料理好きですか?

      どれ is a replacement of Noun itself.
      But どの need to be used as 「どの+Noun」,You can not use どの alone.
