them or those

Postby Hung Tao » Sun Oct 24, 2004 11:25 am

Please tell me whether I should use "them " or "those" in the following sentence:
About 2,000 people were injured last night and 200 of them (or those) were in a critical condition.
Thanks a lot.

Either is possible, but 'them' would be more natural.
