Average: 2 (353 votes)

 Whose bag is this?

'Whose/who's bag is this?'

"Who's bag is this?"
"Whose bag is this?"
Which of the above sentences is correct?

Who's means ‘who is’ - the apostrophe shows that the i is missing:

e.g. "Who's that gorgeous girl in the next row?"

Whose shows the ownership or possession of something by someone and should be followed by a noun

 "Paul, whose eyes are red, hasn’t slept much all holiday."

 Now try and complete the sentences below using whose or who's.

  • the owner of a blue Ford?
  • mother comes from Spain?
  • idea was it to start late?
  • your best friend?
