After a few __________ hesitation, he

agreed that __________ not worth the risk.

minute's its'

minutes' its

minutes' it's

minute's it's

There is no such word as

__its'__, so the first pair is out.

__it's__ means "it is" or "it has"

__its__ is used when "it" owns/possesses the noun immediately following it. Since there's no noun immediately following that blank, the second pair is out.

So ... it's down to

__minutes'__ (plural possessive) or

__minute's__ (singular possessive). What does "few" indicate -- singular or plural?

=)
