Both are correct.I don't have anything in mind.

Friend :We broke up.

Friend's friend: Who decided?

Friend: She decided. or She decided it.

Does Friend's friend make sense?

I'm a little confused about why "She decided it" would be right in this context. The conversation is:Both are correct.

Friend's friend: Who decided?

Friend: She decided. or She decided it.

What is the "it" that she made the decision about? To make the conversation less "casually conversational" we might say:

Friend: My girlfriend and I broke up

Friend's friend: Whose decision was it?

Friend: It was her decision

In this latter case, the "it" is the decision (noun). In the former case, there are only verbs and no nouns so I'm unsure of where the "it" comes in...

She decided and she decided it, both says the same: She decided to break up.

How about:

She decided and she decided it, both says the same: She decided to break up.

"We argued"

"Who won"

"I won it"

OR

"We went to the store"

"Who drove?"

"She drove it"

Are these also implicitly correct?

"We argued"

"Who won"

"I won it" Yes, this means I won the argument.

OR

"We went to the store"

"Who drove?"

"She drove it" This one is a bit confussing, because you started with store, and the question is refering to the car. But it is understandable, that you refer to the car.

If you ask who drove? the best answer is: she drove.

But if you ask: Who drove the car?, then She drove it.

Are these also implicitly correct?

by Volky: If you ask who drove? the best answer is: she drove.

But if you ask: Who drove the car?, then She drove it.

Exactly - we have to have a noun reference when using "it".

Conversationally, if we use "She decided it", we may be able to interpret from body language, tone of voice and syntax that we are implicitly talking about the
