Goto next slide#6: It's/Its

Question:

The car won't start because its battery, or it's battery, is dead?

Answer:

its

How to Remember It:

The word it's means "it is" or "it has," while its means "belonging to it."

In the sentence above, "it is battery" or "it has battery" doesn't work – so the correct version has to be its.

Similarly, in the sign shown here, "it is/has accessories" and "it is/has enclosure" don't make sense, so it's wasn't the right choice.
