  1. 1. "It" must refer to the bus stop (or train stop) where the speaker wants to get off ... his/her destination. The word "for" is not needed.

    2. "That makes two of us" is an idiomatic expression that basically says, "I agree with you." (you + I = two)

    A and B are correct.

  2. "It" in this case refers to whatever the topic was that y ou were talking about. It could be a word, situation , etc.

    Again "that" is a general term like "it."
