It’s or Its?

Common Mistake

People often confuse these two words.

It’s

Use it’s when you could use it is instead.

EG: It’s (it is) now or never.

Its

Use its to show something belongs to ‘it’.

EG. Put the book on its side. (The side belongs to the book.)

If I got rid of my demons, I’d lose my angels.

– Tennessee Williams

You’re or Your?

Common Mistake

People often confuse these two words.

You’re

Use you’re when you could use you are instead.

EG: You’re (you are) the apple of my eye. You’re the pear of my nose.

Your

Use your to show something belongs to ‘you’.

EG. That’s your opinion. (The opinion is yours.)
