Differences between Это Этот Эта.

I bought a dictionary and I am currently making flash cards to try to memorize more words more efficiently, and when looking for это I found an entry that doesn't really describe how the words are used contextually.

The difference is in the gender of a noun that follows это/этот/эта.

этот стол - masculine это вино - neuter эта девочка - feminine
