    Better pheasing is this: "Jane and Mike have the same score."

    Which expression is correct?

    2. How does the baby look?
    It looks sleepy.
    (Is the question or answer correct?)
    It's fine, but it would be better if you said, "He looks sleepy" or "She looks sleepy."

    3. Wow, it's a new beginning.
    (What does 'it' mean?)

    3-1. Yes, it's a new semester!
    (Waht does 'it' mean?)

    In both 3 and 4, "it" doesn't have an antecedent. There is simply a general reference to time -- maybe meaning today or this week.

    "pheasing" ~~> should be "phrasing"!
