What are the 3 different yours?

There, They’re, Theirthere – a location. Think of “where” with the first letter changed.they’re – a contraction of the words “they are”. The apostrophe is your signal that the word can be split into two words.their – possessive, the thing belonging to them. Take the “t” off, and you have “heir”. What does an heir inherit?

Why do people mix up your and you re?

Your is a possessive adjective and “you’re” is a contraction for “you are.” I can’t speak to why mistakes are made but I would guess that some users may not know the difference or that the mistake is a typo. Because they sound like and because grammar is no longer taught in school as it once was.

How do you use my and mine?

As you rightly note, my is a possessive adjective and mine is a possessive pronoun. So, this means you use my where you already have a noun (such as question) and want to indicate ownership. Like with all pronouns, you use mine in place of another noun when it’s understood what’s being discussed.
