    I can spot three mistakes in your sentence.
    What do you think they are?

    That's better, but there are still 2 mistakes, fairly simple spelling mistakes.
    Dear ewie,

    I could find weather as one of the mistakes, and it should be changed to whether.

    Could you please let me know the other one ?

    I've highlighted the third one in red, englishuser:

    Please confirm whether its working at your end.

    Loob has pointed out quite a difficult issue perhaps.

    We need to distinguish between:

    It's - it is.

    Its - of it. Although many possessives take an apostrophe (Charlie's book, the men's car), its does not: e.g. the dog wagged its tail:tick::), not it's:cross::warn::eek: tail.

    Many people get this wrong.
