its it’s – Homophones

its it’s – Homophones

It’s correct.

Its incorrect.

Its and it’s are two of the most confused homophones. These two small words look very similar but that apostrophe completely changes the meanings. ‘Its’ and ‘it’s’ like other homophones are two words with different meanings and different uses.

Just a simple understanding of these two words is enough to discriminate between them.

Its is the possessive form of the pronoun it. ‘Its’ indicates possession.

It’s (with an apostrophe) is a contraction for it is or it has. It has no other use. If you cannot expand it to ‘it is’ or ‘it has’ in your sentence, then it is wrong.
