That blue building in the

middle of this picture is very tall.

The video below might help:

“That” is often contracted with the singular form of the verb “be”

That is a window. = That’s a window.

That is my friend, Tom. = That’s my friend, Tom.

“That’s” usually sounds much better than to say, “That is.”

“That” can’t be contracted in the plural form: That’re (no!)

This, these, and those can’t take contractions.
