Write three sentences that use an apostrophe correctly. One sentence must use an apostrophe with a plural noun that ends in "s". The other two sentences must use the apostrophe in two different ways.

1. Tom’s room is unorganized.
2. I believe Americans’ should never use credit cards.
3. It’s extremely warm outside.

  • Grammar -

    1 and 3 are fine.

    In order to use the plural possessive (Americans'), there must be a noun right after the possessive for it to own.

    Here are some examples:

    The boys' toys were all over the front yard.
    We wanted to see my friends' new performance.

    Rethink #2 and repost.
