    Post Technical Report !

    Reading a book called "Write Right!" by Jan Venolia, in Punctuation Pointers, in the Apostrophe section,

    he said :

    " Avoid using the possessive in the following cases.

    With inanimate objects:

    Poor: the Tower of London's interior.
    Better: the the interior of the Tower of London.
    "

    My question:

    In case of the technical report, where it is mostly talking about inanimate, how to avoid this conflict ?

    Re: Technical Report !

    A technical report is a formal document, so use the 'better' version.
