    reflexive pronoun

    What is the proper use of the word "one" when using it as a reflexive concept? Example: "One's theory of relativity" or "Ones theory of relativity"?

    Re: reflexive pronoun

    I presume that you mean 'possessive' rather than 'reflexive'.

    One's, with the apostrophe.
