“This one's a lot more durable than the old one.”
You got a new passport. The pages are thicker and can't be ripped easily. You notice this and say something about it to your husband. You say this to your husband.
This one's a lot more durable than the old one.
Use "this one" to talk about something that's close to you right now, or very recently. For example:
A: Which one do you like?
B: I like this one.
Have you seen this one? (Pointing at a video on your computer)
Why do you need "one" with it? "This" and "that" can also be used by themselves:
I like this.
People use "one" when they're choosing one thing out of a group. It's like you're saying "this one, not the others".
A "durable" object doesn't get broken, torn, or cracked easily.
Some things that you can describe as "durable" include:
- durable material
- durable plastic
- durable fabric
