Is there an apostrophe?

Her coat is different from that of her sister's.

    No- It would be: Her coat is different from that of her sister.

    Even better would be this: Her coat is different from her sister's.

    I disagree with Summer.

    The sentence implies that the coat is different than her sister's coat.

    The apostrophe is needed.

    The "that of" makes the sister possessive- no need to be possessive twice.

    Who is right?I need help!

    You convinced me, Summer. With that wording, it does not need an apostrophe.

  • Grammar... - , Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 9:40pm

    I think that the apostrophe would be redundant

  • Grammar... - , Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 9:42pm

    Yes. Thanks.

    Sorry, our answers posted at the same time. I didn't mean to seem excessively insistent.
