Why does this sentence translate "it" as "ihn," which I thought meant "him," and not "es"?

    Things can be masculine, feminine or neuter.

    der Tisch, die Lampe, das Auto


    OK, so you can use the masculine or feminine pronoun when saying "it" if the noun it replaces is masculine or feminine?

    Thanks for the help.
