Apostrophes in Possessives

A possessive is a noun or pronoun that shows ownership. A noun can be made possessive by adding apostrophe + s or an apostrophe (if the noun is already plural and ends in s). If a singular noun ends in "s," you should add an apostrophe + s to it. If a plural noun does not end in "s," then you add apostrophe + s.
