1.
____ ____ birthday!
Its and Megan's
It's and Megan's
Its and Megans'
It's and Megans'
The name of the girl is Megan and it's her birthday. Her name will never be Megans. This means if you add an 's' onto the end of her name - there will always be an apostrophe before it.
2.
The ____ hair was blonde.
girls
girl's
girls'
gurl's
There is only one girl and she owns her hair, that's why there is an apostrophe. If there were more than one, we would write: The girls' hair was blonde. The apostrophe after the 's' means more than one.
3.
Tomorrow ____ ____ birthday!
its' and Ravis'
its and Ravi's
it's and Ravis'
it's and Ravi's
His name is not Ravis - it's Ravi. The birthday is his and belongs to him - that's why there is an apostrophe.
4.
The ____ coat was blue.
boys'
boy's
boiy's
boys
The boy owns his coat and that's why there's an apostrophe.

youll
you'll

dosen't
doseno't

The word does is quite hard to spell but try and remember it as it's a high frequency word.

If he doesn't hurry up, ____ be late.

When people speak, they often talk with the words shortened like this. If you write speech, try to use contractions as it'll sound more natural.
