"One" is often used as a pronoun referring to the aforementioned noun,
and its possessive form is _one's_.
When "some" is used as a pronoun, I wonder whether it has a possessive form as _some's_ or _of some_.
I did not find such usage in the dictionaries and usage books I
consulted. So there is no such usage?
One should be polite = a person should be polite
"If one reserved one's politeness for those one respected, one would soon reap the loathing of all mankind."
(Madame de Pompadour)
some people are rude....
some people's rudeness....(It is the noun that is qualified by 'some' that takes the possessive form.)
