    TOO: Use too as a synonym for also or to indicate excessiveness before a verb.

  10. What Is the Difference Between Affect and Effect?

    Affect with an a means "to influence," as in.

    Effect with an e has a lot of subtle meanings as a noun, but to me the meaning "a result" seems to be at the core of all the definitions
  11. It's vsIts 

    • It's is a contraction for it is or it has.
    • Its is a possessive pronoun meaning, more or less, of it or belonging to it.
    • And there is absolutely, positively, no such word as its'.

    A simple test



    If you can replace it[']s in your sentence with it is or it has, then your word is it's; otherwise, your word is its.

    Another test



    Its is the neuter version of his and her. Try plugging her into your sentence where you think its belongs. If the sentence still works grammatically (if not logically) then your word is indeed its.

    Examples



    • It's been good to know you. Contraction: it has
    • It's a bird! It's a plane! Contraction: it is

    • 2. “I like you’re backpack.”

    • Test: “My going to meet me at 6 p.m.”(Incorrect.)
  13. WHOSE AND WHO'S WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
    • The trouble here is due to the apostrophe, which on 99% of English words indicates possession, but on this one simply indicates a contraction. If you can replace the word with who is or who has, use who's. If not, use whose.
    • Who's is a contraction of who is or, less commonly, who has.
    • Who's watching TV?
    • Do you know who's going to speak?
    • Who's ready to go?
