for the name Odysseus, if i want to add an s at the end do i have to write apostrophe before or after the s?
The first one is better, yes.
Yes that's what i originally thought but my English teacher wrote this on my paper:
If you were to need one you would write it like “Odysseus’”. When the word ends in an “s” you simply place the apostrophe after the ending “s”.
No, I'd put 's.
I'd also put 's on any name or singular noun that ends with -s.
