The Farmers harvest all through the land was destroyed by the drought.
(should the word farmer--- be farmers, farmer's or farmers"?)


It was (Judas,Judas' Judas's) kiss that betrayed the Lord.
I say I should use Judas

My ( son-in-law, son's-in-law, son-in-law's) business prospered very much.
I belive it should be son-in-law's

Those books are (ours,our's ours'). I beleve its "ours"

Don't you think (its,it's its') time to go? ----- it's

Thank you, this is real confusing to me.

I'd use an apostrophe. The final S is optional.
