Apostrophes

Hello everyone,

We use apostrophes to mark possessive nouns and contractions.
The use or lack of an apostrophe can change the meaning of a word or a sentence.

Ex: It's never late to learn.          My friend's car is new.
       It's raining men.                   The women's shoes are beautiful.

Careful: Don't confuse It's and its.

  • It's can be It is or It has. 
  • Its is a possessive adjective or pronoun.

It's a big supermarket. (It is).  

It's got big windows. (It has).

Its doors are automatic. (Possessive adjective).
