It's = it is. It's is a contraction of it is. e.g. It's hot today (it is hot today). Its is a possessive. e.g. The dog wagged its tail.

use of 's or s'. 's= is used for possessive and singular number. s'=is used for plural indication. Eg- 1-this is my brother's pen. 2-the girls' garments are very cheap in this shop. it's= (it is or it has) its=used for possessive

it's = "it is" contraction of a pronoun + verb to be its = posesive pronoun like mine, your, hers but this is used to the pronoun "it" E.G. The cat is black and its name is Mimi. It's a good company

" It's " is the short form of " It is ". You can use " It's " at the place of " It is ". " It's " is a compound form of pronoun and a verb. On the other hand, " Its " is a possessive case. Generally we use apostrophe (') in most of the possessive cases. But notice, here we are not using apostrophe ('). Example: i) It is my pen. [Correct] =>It's my pen. [Correct] ii) This pen is mine. It's color is red. [Incorrect] => This pen is mine. Its color is red. [Correct]

's is used when you are talking about someone's thing, like My mom's mobile. only s is used when we are talking about many things like My mom has many mobiles.

It's and Its There is often confusion between its and it's. If you delve deeper into this issue, you will see that there is good reason for the confusion. However, if you just want to know what is right, the matter is very simple. It's It's is short for it is or it has. This is a 100% rule. It cannot be used for anything else. If you cannot expand your it's to it is or it has, then it is wrong! Its Its is like his and her. (They are all possessive adjectives.) Look at these examples:These are his pies.(His is used for a masculine possessor (owner).)These are her flowers.(Her is used for feminine possessor.)These are its footprints.(Its is used for neuter possessor.)

The word it’s is always short for ‘it is’ (as in it's raining), or in informal speech, for ‘it has’ (as in it's got six legs). The word its means ‘belonging to it’ (as in hold its head still while I jump on its back). Its a possessive form and pronoun like his, her, their etc. so, it's=it is and its= possessive form of it.
