The word "it's" is never a possessive. "It's" is a contraction of "it is" or "it has". :wink:
Finally, someone who explains it as I do. My students say "It is, its and it's are a bit confusing". I say, " If the word is either possessive or a contraction and the student is really reading the sentence, then you should be able to identify how it is used." Thank you.
