    Exclamation Apostrope use

    Could you please confirm if the apostrophe is correctly used in the following examples. If it's not correctly used, why not? If it is correctly used, why is that so?

    Jillís shorter than Jan.
    My nameís Jack.
    My hairís long and silky.

    All three are fine. The apostrophe indicates the contracted to be form.

    Jill is shorter than Jan.
    My name is Jack.
    My hair is long and silky.

    I hope this helps.
