IOP

Hola,

I have been confused a lot recently about iops and all that business, and I have come across something that confused me. For example,

Could you say 'Se lo es'? I would have thought this meant 'It is for him'. Is this valid, or would you say something different using para?

Thanks

It is for him - Es para ello.
You don't need a subject.

Those object pronouns get me, too.
SpanishDict has great information that I refer to from time to time:

Are you sure? I thought: "Es para el"
