When do you use "tiu" instead of "tio"?

Use "tiu" when answering questions with "kiu" and use "tio" when answering questions with "kio." "Tiu" is like "that (one)" whereas "tio" is like "that (thing)."

Mi pensis ke "Ĉu" estis nur por "jes/ne" demandoj?

I tried answering "Ĉu tio vias aŭ mias." and it was marked as incorrect. Why? Doesn't work with pronouns?

It's only adjectives that you can verb to get "to be [adjective]". Verbing nouns gets you "to use [noun]". I've never heard of verbing pronouns.

I thought that "Ĉu" was only for yes/no questions?

It's used for closed questions. "Is that yours or mine?" is closed because there are only 2 possible answers.

Open questions have their own question words (like who, what, where, which, etc.)
