What is a demonstrative determiner or adjective?
Well, it is in fact a word which points out a particular noun. In English, a determiner would be this/that and these/those. In French, a determiner has to agree with the noun that follows it. For example, if it is a masculine noun, you must use the masculine demonstrative determiner.

ce — this/that (when used with a masculine noun: Je lis ce livre)
cet — this/that (when the noun is masculine and starts with vowel: Cet arbre est très grand)
