    It belongs to me.
    It's mine.

    You could answer only "me" or you could say "That's mine" but not only "mine."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    The question is "Who does this belong to?"
    Barb has given an excellent answer to your question. Please see the amendments I have made to your post. Please take a look at your capitalisation and punctuation.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
