    Re: does it or is it

    None of them are correct because they do not end with a question mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The first two are correct. The third is not.

    The first two are correct. You can tell more easily by expressing them as "This belongs to you". -> "This does belong to you". -> "Does this belong to you?"
    You might be able to recognise that "This is belong/s to you" is not correct, so neither is the question, "Is this belong/s to you?".
    Whether you use 'this' or 'it' depends on other factors, as you know.

    they are correct.
    They could be with a question mark at the end.
