    Smile Re: general ask.

    Hi!

    In a sentence:
    do you know where is the gate's door?

    This is like asking where is the door that belongs to the gate? Do you think the gate has another door to get in? Because (s) means belonging to in this sentence.
    bye

    Either you have lost it or forgotten where you left it (I think!)
