I guess you must refer to : are, kore, sore あれ，これ、それ
equivalent in japanese to this, that / this one , that one in english
common wisdom tells that kore refers to what is closer to the speaker, are a bit farther, sore far from both speaker and listener
In daily speech, it may not be so strict (but I stand to be corrected ...).
“are” あれ means "that (that one) over there" - It’s used when you refer to something far from both you and the person you’re talking to. “kore” これmeans "this (or this one)" – something close to the speaker. “sore” それ means "that (or that one)" – something a little far from you but close to the someone you’re talking to.
