***Explanation of how to identify he’s= he is or he has, she’s= she is or she has, it’d= it is or it has—-

1)If there is he’s/she’s/it’s+ v1+ing then it is he is, she is, it is

2)If there is no main verb in the sentence such as he’s, she’s, it’s + noun/adjective+ noun/adverb+ adjective+ noun+ phrase/modifier then also he is, she is, it is

3)If there is he’s/she’s/it’s+ v3+object then it is he has, she has, it has.

4) If there is he’s/she’s/it’s+ v3+by+agent (passive voice sentence) then it is he has, she has, it has.

5)If there is he’s/she’s/it’s+ being+ v3+by+agent (present continuous passive voice) then it is he is, she is, it is

###Explanation of how to identify I’d = I had or I would (We’d, you’d, they’d, he’d, she’d, it’d)—
