Yes, they are interchangeable.

In my opinion dies, das,jenes ist not interchangeable, just like the, this, that is not interchangable. I looked it up in the Duden.de and it also supports my opinion.

What does "das" reference? Why couldn't we place die or der in there?

You could very well ask: "Ist der normal?" "Ist die normal?" when talking about some male / female gender object. "Der will zu Fuß durch die Sahara. Ist der noch normal?"

"Ist das normal?" applies also to situations, developments, actions etc.

"Der Postbote war immer noch nicht da. Ist das normal?"

"Sie trinkt zum Frühstück Eierlikör. Ist das normal?"

But in this context 'das' means 'this' or 'that', so how are we suppose to know when we should use 'das' instead of 'dieses'? or we can use both?

Anyone who knows what's the difference between "Dies" und "Das" in sentecens like "Das ist eine Katze/Dies ist eine Katze"? I know that "dies" is used at the beginning of a sentence when followed by a verb and not by a noun, but what about the difference between "Dies" und "Das" in the same context?
