    I sent it yesturday, so (it’s or its) going to arrive late?

      Hi Shawn,

      In your sentence, the “its” is referring to two implied words — “it is”, therefore you need an apostrophe as follows:

      a) I sent it yesterday, so its going to arrive late? — incorrect
      a) I sent it yesterday, so it is going to arrive late? — correct
      a) I sent it yesterday, so it’s going to arrive late? — correct, because the “i” is omitted.

      I hope this helps,
      Cheers

      Hey Debbie, thanks for dropping by!

      If your grandkids call you “GRAMS”, then you would write: Grams’ grandsons.

      If your grandkids call you “GRAM”, then you would write: Gram’s grandsons.

      Hope this helps 🙂
