    I don`t understand. What do you mean by "write is incorrect"?
    Do you mean the spelling is wrong or what?

    There are two different words:

    Its -possessive adjective [its display- the display of the computer]
    Its - possessive pronoun [the dog`s tail is hurt. It is its [the dog`s tail]not the cat`s
    It`s =it is [it`s nice, it`s being built]
    =it has[it has been a nice day=it`s been a nice day]

    the answer is it's because it's means it is, but its means something belong to something.

    Re: Its or It's?

    I choosed ( It`s )

    I think it`s the correct . And in this sentence ( it`s) the short form ( it is ) . So, choice no.1 is the correct .

    But ,( its) is the possessive pronoun . So, I agree with mrsh answer .

    I think his/her post referred to:
    I like the first one but I am always write the second I donít know why?
    That sentence needs some punctuation, but there is clearly nothing wrong with "write" there.

    It also needs to get rid of "am". I think that is why the poster thought it should be "right".
