"His" is already a possessive pronoun, and so does not take the Saxon genitive as well. If you like, it is equivalent to "him's" (this form is NOT correct - I am just using it to show the origin of "his").Originally Posted by Anewbie
1) Yes. "The item" is in the third person. The third person form of all regular English verbs is the present participle with an "-s" suffix. For example:Originally Posted by Anewbie
"I walk; you walk; he walks."
"I eat; you eat; he eats."
"I scream; you scream; he screams for ice creams ."
2) It's not "thats". It's "that's", because it is short for "That is".
