When we speak, if we reflect, we speak mostly about ourselves. Therefore, the word that we use to denote ourselves is said to be in the FIRST PERSON i.e. ‘I’. It is in Singular, the Plural is ‘We’.
Next, we speak to people who are right before us. That is our second priority. The Singular ‘You’ is in second person, the Plural is also ‘You’ (you have to find if ‘You’ is in Singular or Plural by referring to context.
Then we speak of people who are not right before us. They may be either male or female. Then we use ‘He’ for masculine and ‘She’ for feminine gender. Plural is ‘They’.
When we speak of Non-Living things, we use ‘It’. Plural is ‘They’.
