Name: …………………………………………………………………….  Date:  ……………………………….. Using      its     and      it’s     When do we use  its Its is a possessive adjective. Use  its if you can change it for a noun + ’s.        E.g.     The cat drank  its  milk. The cat drank  the cat’s  milk. What about  it’s? This is the shortened form of  it is. Use  it’s if you can change it for  it is or  it has. E.g.  It’s  very cold today! It is very cold today! Oh dear! The person who wrote these sentences didn’t know whether to use  its  or  it’s !  Copy  these sentences into your book, using the correct word. 1. My dad says its  very cold in Canada today. 2. The dog ran away because its  collar came loose. 3. The robber broke into the car and stole its  contents.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
