C’est vs Il/Elle est

Hello!

In the lesson re: 

“Use il/elle est for statements and opinions related to specific things.”

Tu aimes mon pull?  Oui, il est très beau.

My question: do you ever use il/elle est in the plural, ie., ils/elles sont, in these instances?

How would you answer: Tu aimes mes pulls?  

Would it be: Oui, ils sont beaux. If not, can you explain why?

Thank you for your help!

Hi Lisa,

Yes, you would say,  ils/elles sont... 

e.g

Tu aimes ces tableaux ?----> oui, ils sont très beaux Do you like these pictures? ----> Yes, they are very beautiful

Tu aimes ces robes d'été?  ----> oui, elles sont très belles = Do you like these summer dresses? ----> Yes, they are very beautiful

Hope this helps!
