The possessive apostrophe with plural words

To show that something belongs to more than one person or thing, use a possessive apostrophe. Put this after the plural form of the word.

Some plural words don’t end in s. For these words, add an s after the apostrophe.

Some singular nouns already end in an s. For these words, add another s after the apostrophe.

  1. puppies
  2. cats
  3. The children’s books.
  4. The puppies lead.
  5. The women’s boots.
  6. The girl’s hairband.
  7. The cat’s food.
  8. supermarket
  9. presentation

  2. last
  3. jumped
  4. before
  5. run
  6. under
  7. air
