How would you translate: That is a black snake. Perhaps: Ular itu yang hitam?

Ular itu = That snake.
Ular itu hitam = That snake is black.

Itu ular = That is a snake.
Itu ular hitam = That is a black snake.

Thank you for this explanation. Meanwhile, I have found that the placement of 'itu' and 'ini' dictates how it is translated. Hence your explanation that now ties in with my current understanding. Great stuff.
