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

"Its" is a possessive adjective.

The correct answer is - It's

Explanation
: It's is a short form of It is. On the other hand its defines something belonging to something, e.g. What is the color of Apple? = its color is red.

I hope my answer is clear to you. By the way, English is not my native language, neither is Spanish but I teach people these two languages as my hobby.

It's is always an abbreviation of it is. Whereas its is used when an item belongs to something.

I think it's a mistake. (I think it is a mistake)

Thanks for clearing the doubt with good explanation and yes it would be "It's" and looking forward to learn more from this awesome forum.
