Worksheet Overview

Its and it's are used for different purposes.

Its (without an apostrophe) is used to show possession (who or what something belongs to).

Its wool was very thick.


It's (with an apostrophe) is used as a shortened form of 'it is'. This is called a contraction.

It's not very confusing!
