    The possessive 'your' is correct.

    I am not a teacher.

    Welcome to the forum, Be-Large. The difference between the two sentences is that only the second one is correct.
    Please do not address us as Sir. We have many female members who are very qualified to answer your questions.
    Be sure to begin every sentence with a capital letter.
    There is no need to thank us in advance. If you are plesed with the response, just click on the thank icon.

    Re: The difference between the below sentences.

    We'd say '...the following sentences'.

    Re: The difference between the below sentences.

    I'd say either "...the following sentences" or "...the sentences below."
