Its and It’s, these are probably two of the most confusing terms or pronouns. Even though for a normal English speaker, it is quite easy to differentiate between the two.
However, other people who are not native to English to find these terms a lot confusing.
Its, it is a word in English language which is used to describe the possession of something towards its possessor. We are going to use this term in the sentences and then you will be able to understand the different better.
Example 1: The dog ate its food.
Example 2: The Lake is beautiful in its own way.
This term ‘it’s’ is actually ‘it is’ and is written in the short form which is our second confusing term for this article. It just like when we write ‘she had’ as ‘she’d’. The term is actually shortened to save some space. It is a simple English writing norm and nothing special.
Example 1: It is a beautiful day.
If you are capable of reading this article, you must know enough English to understand that this is nothing complex and all you need to do is to look through the examples to understand the difference.
I hope the article was enough to help you remove the confusion between ‘it’s’ and 'its'.
