Meena,

Arguing with one's boss is always gonna be confusing. Avoid doing it.

In the phrase you cite, "its" should not have an apostrophe because the
word is the possessive (genitive) of "it" (in the same way that "his" is
the posssive of "he" and "my" is the possessive of "I").

ITS possessive

IT'S contraction for "it is" or "it has"
