Is it use to do or used to do?
- I used to do laundry once a week.
- They used to do each other’s hair.
- We used to do the dishes every day.
Though they’re pronounced the same, there’s a big difference in meaning between its and it’s.
Its and it’s are often confused, but its (without apostrophe) is the possessive form of “it” (e.g., its tail, its argument, its wing). You use “its” instead of “his” and “her” for neuter, inanimate nouns.
