"It's" Easy!

Education & Instruction

A lot of people have trouble with the difference between

 

it’s”, as in “it’s an old car,“ and
its”, as in “The car was showing its age”...

 

...even though they wouldn’t confuse

 

      “his” and “he’s
      “her” and “she’s
or
      “my” and “I’m.”

 

So, it’s easy to keep each one in its proper place.  Just remember...

he's

he is

his

belonging to him

she's

she is

her

belonging to her

it's

it is

its

belonging to it

The same idea holds true for you’re and your, they’re and their, etc.
