    Default Help with ..s..s'..'s..

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Farmers harvest all through the land was destroyed by the drought.
    (should the word farmer--- be farmers, farmer's or farmers"?)


    It was (Judas,Judas' Judas's) kiss that betrayed the Lord.
    I say I should use Judas

    My ( son-in-law, son's-in-law, son-in-law's) business prospered very much.
    I belive it should be son-in-law's

    Those books are (ours,our's ours'). I beleve its "ours"

    Don't you think (its,it's its') time to go? ----- it's

    Thank you, this is real confusing to me.

    I'd use an apostrophe. The final S is optional.
