Average: 3.4 (79 votes)

If there is one thing that English speakers can all agree on, it's our dislike of apostrophes. We often find them confusing even though the rules that govern them are fixed. The English city of Birmingham has banned the use of apostrophes from all of its street signs because people found them "too confusing"!

Let's see how well you can use apostrophes with this completely fantastic quiz!

hi

First the lesson is really good. I had just one mistake.
Dear tib 13,
The nouns with "`s" is used when talking about a possession of something to a singular or plural nouns.
For example:
1-I have my friend`s pictures.
Friend is singular.
2-This ball is children`s one.
Children is plural

But when talking about "s`" like in
-Simon, Johnny, Paul and Peter were playing. Lisa came and kicked the boys` ball away.
(boys) ends with s so we don`t add another s for possession only add (`)
but also sometimes we add `s after nouns end with s.
They are exceptions according to the pronunciation.
I hope you Chris to correct me if I have any mistake. Love Struck
