Determine if the following sentences employ the correct use of commas and apostrophes.True=correct False=wrong

1. The wound was copiously irrigated with normal saline, and the musosal flap was replaced to its appropriate position.

I think the comma is ok -
but shouldn't there be an apostrophe after its?
making the answer False

  • Grammar -

    The sentence is correct. The possessive, "its," does not have an apostrophe.

  • Grammar -

    No, the sentence is fine as is.

    Here's some info on that pronoun.

    it = use as subject or object
    its = use as possessive
    it's = use as contraction (it is / it has)

    There is no such word as its' <~~!!
