Its Vs It's

Hello fellas. English-Vinglish segment come back.

Between 'Its' and "It's"

I know 'Its' and "it's" very confusing and very common mistake. So, take a deep breath I am going to explain how we use it.


The word its, means belonging to it (as in hold its head still while I jump on its back).

Its also bring mean his or her. They are all possessive adjectives.


It's is a short form for 'It is'. This is 100% rule. And it cannot be used for anything else.

*If you cannot expand your it's to it is or it has, then it is wrong!*

Here a few example for It's and Its

>  It's been raining for a week and now it's starting to snow. (Both expand to it has)

> The reef shark chases it's prey through the choral. X (this sentence totally wrong. It should be Its, it cannot be expanded to it is or has. so it must be possessive adjective.)

I hope this will help you to clear all the confusing. Remember! It's is a short form and can be expanded to it has or it is. Mean while Its means belonging to it

So till we meet again at next entry for English Vinglish Segment :)

With love,
