Morning, noon and night

Three random things I learned, or remembered, today

Apostrophe

NOON

How do I know when to put an apostrophe in it’s?

A google search found a great website which tells all about this and much more.

ASK OXFORD

The word it’s is always short for it is (as in it’s raining), or in informal speech, for it has (as in it’s got six legs).

The word its means ‘belonging to it’ (as in hold its head still while I jump on its back). It is a possessive pronoun like his.

Easy really!
