How do i determine , these or those?

https://www.duolingo.com/Kosmokrator

this, these = este/esta/esto, estos/estas

that, those = ese/esa/eso, esos/esas

The forms of this and these all have 't' in them, ('est-') while the firms of that and those do not ('es-').

Is it normal to capitalize the T in T-shirt?

According to Grammarist, edited (on average, more formal than unedited) writing most often uses "T-shirt" because origin of the name is the "T" shape of the shirt. It's not shaped like a "t." That being said, "t-shirt" follows standard English capitalization and is what I personally see most often as well as use myself. It looks awkward to have a random capital T in the middle of a sentence.
