    Re: Its or It's

    The correct answer is "it's." Every sentence needs a verb and here it is to be : "it is."

    "Its" is a possessive adjective.

    I hope this helps

    Re: Its or It's

    I think, both "its" and "it's" are acceptable.
    While "it's"is a short form of it is, its is a determiner.

    This means that both options are right?
    In my opinion it's (short term of it is) is right.
    Correct me, if I am wrong...
