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?
