Apostrophe -is a punctuation mark. In
English, it serves three purposes:
• When one omits a letter (contractions like
don’t).
• To make something possessive (as in the
cat’s whiskers).
• To make letter plural (as in P's and
Q's).
.
Possession (Compound) –
When two people share something, they
share an apostrophe.
When two people have separate things,
they each need their own apostrophe.
