    Question Mrs

    My son was marked down for putting an apostrophe in the following sentence: 'Put that CD back in it's case over there'.

    I always thought the apostrophe was put in to show the possessive - am I right please?

    Thank you

    You are right, but that doesn't work with pronuns.

    Let's see... you would say: It is my blanket and not it is I's blanket.

    I-->My-->Mine
    You-->Your -->Yours
    He-->His-->His
    She-->Her-->Hers
    It-->Its-->Its
    We-->Our-->Ours
    They-->Their-->Theirs
