Its : possessive pronoun
I like its colour
All the common contractions with subject it are really grammar markings:
it's [meaning 'it is'] Progressive or Passive
[meaning 'it has'] Perfect
it'd [meaning 'it would'] Conditional
[meaning 'it had'] Pluperfect
it'll [meaning 'it will'] Future
It's nice to see you.

Yesterday when I was young
I was happy
I did not think of sorrow of tomorrow
Everything was beautiful in my eyes
I enjoyed every moment of my childhood
I used to laugh
I used to cry
that yesterday had gone forever
if that clock could be turned backward
I would be forever young
It would be an IMPOSSIBLE DREAM

For present perfect tense the formula you use is SUBJECT + HAVE/HAS + PAST PARTCIPLE. Example; I have had my dinner. The subject is I + have + had (past participle). For past perfect tense the formula is SUJECT + HAD + PAST PARTICIPLE. Example I had had my dinner. The subject is I + had + had (past participle).
I have taken my dinner.

I always introduce my English Communication Skills Program with Pronouns. Pronouns replace nouns. They are I (saya), You (Awak), He (Dia (L), She (Dia (P), It (Ia (animal or thing), We (kita), You (kamu (plural), They (Mereka).
The verbs to be for present tense are:
The translation for verb to be am/are/is in Bahasa is ialah/adalah
I am a communication consultant.
Saya adalah seorang perunding komunikasi.
The verbs to be for past tense are:
The translation for verb to be was/were/in Bahasa is ialah/adalah
I was an engineer before.
Saya adalah seorang jurutera sebelum ini.
This is a book.
It is a motivational book.
Always remember every English sentence must have at least one verb.
Is/am/are/was/were are non-action verbs.
You cannot say "I a student", wrong, you must say "I am a student."
You cannot say "It a cat", wrong, you must say "It is a cat."
Now we go to 'verb conjugation" for each pronoun in present tense:
Just observe for pronoun he, she and it you have to add s at the end of the verb.
You add es at the end of the word such as go and do.
The conjugation of the word do which acts as auxiliary verbs are as follows;
For auxiliary verb do means memang
He does understand the lesson
Dia memang faham pelajaran itu
After auxiliray verb do/does you use main verb (the base form), you cannot say "He doesn't understands the lesson" wrong, you say "He doesn't understand the lesson."
You cannot say "He does understands the lesson" you say "He does understand the lesson" or if you use do as the main verb you say "He understands the lesson."
You say "It does work" or "It works".
Now just observe all verbs (in bold letters)in the following passage:
Ali is a driver. He drives his taxi every day. He works from dawn to dusk. He doesn't work at night.
