    Two questions

    I have two questions:

    1. Could anyone check the grammar of the following sentences? Also, do they have the same meaning?
    "I don't like either juic or tea."
    "I don't like either."
    "I don't like juice or tea."

    2. The second is about the possessive case.
    "Mr. Thomas' house is big." "Mr. Thomas's house is big."
    Which is correct?

    All are correct, and mean the same [ taking it that #2 is in answer to a question : Would you/Do you like juice or tea? ]

    2. The second is about the possessive case.
    "Mr. Thomas' house is big." "Mr. Thomas's house is big."
    Which is correct? You will find supporters for both of these forms. I prefer 's.
