    Default Correct grammer

    Question #: 6: Its mine. This sentence is correct.
    User's answer: True
    Correct answer: False
    Additional Notes: It's = It ishas
    Its = possessive

    Is there an error in this answer?

    Its (no apostrophe) means belongs to it.

    The dog hurt its paw.

    It's means it is or it has.

    It's raining. (It is raining)
    It's been nice to see you. (It has been nice to see you.)

    A sentence must have a verb. *Its mine* does not have a verb.
