Is there a difference between "Ĝi estas glaso" and "Estas glaso"?

Also, how do you convey "There is a glass" as opposed to "It is a glass"?

Thanks!

Good Translate thinks "there is an apple" = "estas pomo" https://translate.google.com/#en/eo/There%20is%20an%20apple.

A couple days ago I submitted a list of sentences which needed some attention. I have been informed that some of these sentences had already been removed from the course and based on input from myself and some other fluent speakers, the remaining sentences in this list have been removed. I was also informed that tree 2.0 will more clearly explain the difference between "estas" and "ĝi estas."

All of these sentences need "ĝi" to be translated "it is" or "is it."

"Is it a sheep or a lamb?" Translation: Ĉu estas ŝafo aŭ ŝafido?

"Is it true?" Translation: Ĉu veras? - needs to be Ĉu ĝi estas vera?

"Ĉu estas deziro aŭ ĉu estas amo? " Translation: Is it desire or is it love?

"Ĉu estas neĝo aŭ hajlo? " Translation: Is it snow or hail?

"It is a glass." Translation: Estas glaso.
