Please make note of the correction I've made to you post. Also, 'green color' is not an appropriate title for this post. Please try using a word or phrase that represents your question. For example, "I'm on it" would be a great title for this post.
A. "I'm on it" is short for "I'm on top of it", which means, I'm doing it now. For example,
Max: Sam, did you mail the letter I asked to mail?
Sam: Sorry. I forgot. I'm on it! (I'm going to mail it now.)
"I'm in it" can have more than one meaning. Would you have a sentence to go along with it? For example, "I'm in it" could means, "I'm involved in a situation" e.g., I am in it up to my ears!
B. "Take your time" is self-explanatory. It means, go slow, use as much time as you need to get something accomplished:
Max: Do you have last week's homework assignment? I need to see it.
Pat: Gee, hold on. I don't remember where I put it.
Max: Take your time. I don't need it right away.
C. "Take the time" refers to Time itself, and not a person's time. For example,
I'm going to take the time provided by the school to study for my exams.
He didn't take the time provided by the day to call me.
She always takes her (own) time in the bathroom.
D. to piss someone off is an idiom, and it's a strong form of language at that. Speakers use it to express their anger, and it's also considered a mild form of inappropriate language. The idiom "piss . . . off" stems from the act of urinating. To urinate on someone, even if the act is unintentional, will anger that person.
