Read the following sentences.

I've the kite myself.
He isn't reading now.
They can't swim in the sea.

From the above sentences,we can  see short form A.V/ and not with A.V.

There are two kinds of contractions.

1.Contraction of A.V.(auxiliary verb)

2,Contraction of not with A.V. 

Contraction of A.V.

subj.+'s=(he is/she is/karim is/it is/he has/she has/it has/Rana has/I was/he was/she was/john was/it was)
If there  is seen sub. +'s +obj/adj/noun/verb-ing,then 's means is/was.
But if there is sub. +'s+verb-p.p/noun,then 's means has.
sub.+'m=I am.
