Spelling tip: Apostrophes in pronouns are always contractions, not possessives

If you have trouble keeping pronoun forms like its vs it's straight, try to remember:<br />
There are no apostrophes in possessive pronouns.<br />
my, your, his, her, its, our, your, their, whose<br />
An apostrophe in a pronoun always marks a contraction.<br />
I'm = I am, you're = you are, he's = he is, she's = she is, it's = it is, we're = we are, you're = you are, they're = they are, who's = who is<br />
So if you would not write 'He's dog was friendly', don't write 'It wagged it's tail', either.
