    Re: 's and s'

    Welcome.

    First,
    Singular and Plural: add -s for more than one
    EX: one daughter
    EX: two daughers
    EX: three daughters

    Second,
    Possession: add apostrophe -'s
    EX: one daughter => daughter's

    Possession: if the word ends in -s, add only an apostrophe
    EX: two daughters => daughters'

    Example Sentences

    #1 I have two daughters and they share the same room. My daughters' bedroom is next to my bedroom.

    #2 I have one daughter. My daughter's bedroom is next to my bedroom.
