    Of course, nouns (not pronouns!) do take an apostrophe when taking the possessive form.

    Simple, isn't it?



    Thanks for great information

    Thumbs down Re: "it's" vs "its"

    one answer was "its is right." I think the word right is the wrong one to use. Correct would be a more appropriate word. Am I correct in that assumption?
