These two words are often confused by native speakers of English as well as by foreign learners.

>> Its is a possessive word (like my, your).
Every country has its traditions. (NOT … it’s traditions.)
>> It’s is the contracted form of it is or it has.
It’s raining again. (NOT …Its raining again.)
Have you seen my camera? It’s disappeared. (NOT …Its disappeared.)
