A mistake similar to that one from our last week’s tip (their and they’re) is the confusion surrounding the use of your and you’re.
Your is possessive and signifies something belongs the person you are speaking to. For example, “What is your credit card number?” or “Are these your pants?”.
You’re is a combination of the words, you and are, and we call that a contraction. Therefore, whenever we see the word you’re, we can read it as you are and it will still make sense.
The most simple way to tell these two apart is to use them in a sentence. For example: Your cat is angry. This makes perfect sense, but you’re (you are) cat is angry does not work. You’re is the words you and are put together.
