    Re: Its or It's?

    I think:

    'Its' is a determiner. It means belonging to or connected with a thing, an animal or a baby

    For example,
    Turn the box on its side.
    The dog had hurt its paw.
    The baby threw its food on the floor.

    'It's' is a short form. It may either be it is or it has.
