* It: “It” is used for inanimate objects.  In French, there is no neuter pronoun “it”. Things are either masculine or feminine: il is used for masculine nouns and elle is used for feminine nouns.Examples:

Il (le livre m.) est dans mon sac à dos.

It (the book) is in my school bag.

Elle (la pomme f.) est sur la table.

It (the apple) is on the table.

* One / Someone: The French pronoun “on” has several meanings. It is used in the same ways as the personal pronouns “one”, “someone”, “some people” or “they” in a nonspecific sense or as a less formal substitute (colloquial) for the subject pronoun nous (we). Examples

On doit toujours laver ses pommes avant de les manger

One must always wash one's apples before eating them.

Avec maman, on mange des crêpes.

With mom, we eat pancakes.

*Tu or Vous: When referring to more than one person vous must be used. When referring to a single person, vous or tu may be used depending on the situation. Tu is informal and used only with well-known acquaintances. Vous is the polite form used when addressing unknown persons or older persons.
