Kapan menggunakan “it’s” atau “its”

Terkadang ada kekeliruan dalam penggunaan “its” atau “it’s”

its/ it’s mempunyai dua bentuk.
1. Bentuk pertama mempunyai tanda baca ” ‘ ” / aposthrope
2. Bentuk kedua yaitu singkatan dari it is atau it has

Contoh untuk it’s yang berarti it is : “horay ! it’s time for watching” itu berarti “horay, it is time for watching”
dan, “wow it’s been a long time” yang berarti “wow it has been a long time”

contoh bentuk yang lain dari “its” tidak menggunakan aposthrope, adalah bentuk possesive/kepunyaan, berikut contohnya :
1. bali is famous for its culture

its pada kalimat diatas tidak bisa bila diganti menggunakan “it is” atau “it has”.
