"Your shirt is dirty: it is gray."

Would it be correct to state "c'est grise" instead of "elle est grise"?

I think it is because the "it" here is a pronoun representing the noun "chemise". Since nouns have a masculine or feminine nature in French, their pronouns too must represent this. "Une chemise" is feminine, so its pronoun must be "elle".

I think c'est gris is correct too.

That's what I just wondered. Why can't it's be c'est? When you hover over "it is" it even suggests "c'est".

I don't understand the reason too

Same question here as everyone else.

I too have this doubt. Not sure if this is the right place to clarify it.

I also think "c'est grise" is correct.
