Identify the incorrect word.

Emma told Jim that his car was still in it's parking place next to our apartment.

B. it's
D.no error
everyone keeps saying it is "it's" but isn't the incorrect word "our"...?

  • English -

    "our" is correct

    "it's" = it is or it has

    Let us know what you decide.

    It's means it is, which, of course, makes no sense in this sentence.

    You're right; our is the best word in this sentence. However, his is also an acceptable word. In fact, as I look at it, his is better than our.

  • English -

    saying it that way it sounds like it is no error....but I thought it should read their apartment not our...

  • English -

    . . . his car is in HIS parking place . . .
    That makes the most sense to me.

  • English -

    If there is only ONE error in the sentence, what word is the erroneous word??

  • English -

    Then it's should be replaced with his...

  • English -

    Yes, ... or "its" (no apostrophe).

  • English -

    Thank you...

    You're welcome!
