    Peter's

    Hello, this sentences is in my textbook:

    1) She is a relation of Peter's.

    Is that sentence correct?

    How about this sentences? I'd use this one:

    2) She is a relation of Peter.


    Thank you

    Hello, I am not a teacher,
    but I have learnt that after the owner you have the object (owner's + object).

    Maybe for the first it's better to write the following sentence : She is a Peter's relation.

    I am not sure but I think I am right; for the second it's sound nice for me, but I'm just a learner.

    Have a nice day.

    Both of those are correct. The first is more natural.
