Cela vs ça

Cela vs ça

In the suggested translations for 'that already makes two items', 'Cela fait déjà deux objets' is preferred over 'Ca fait déjà deux objets'. But since the register is informal rather than formal I had thought that 'ça' would be more appropriate. Or are there other reasons you might prefer 'cela'?

Hi Tom, 

Both Cela and Ça are accepted as possibilities and a combination of both in that particular sentence.

Bonne Continuation !
