Just the "It eats". We don't have something for "It" (It would be Eso as in Eso come - That thing eats, and its conjugated as "He/She". The dog eats, it eats - El perro come, èl come. Actually, the movie "It" (the evil clown that made me look at the shower's drain all my childhood) was translated as "Eso".

Good, just remove the "It is - Es" line =)

Es describes "it is" constantly in spanish, why tell him to remove it? 3rd person singlular can refer to "it" as well, not just el/ella/usted, or am I misunderstanding?

Because in spanish there is no "it", its either He or She... I dont know why, but we have assigned EVERYTHING with a gender. If youre going to use "it" you will need to use a HE or SHE before. The only scenario i can think of something not having a gender is with the demonstrative ESO. But it would only be when pointing something unknown, like alien or ghostly stuff. Let me know if it is clear! =)

Yes, I understand. On a side note, the word "Lo" is used for "It", and yes it is third person singular conjugation. Sometimes Lo is used explicitly in a spanish sentence, but sometimes its omitted, yet implied.
