Possessive Apostrophe

The possessive apostrophe (‘ or ‘s) is all about making a statement of ownership. This blog belongs to me. This one belongs to you. In grammar speak, the apostrophe shows the possessive of nouns.

The rules of using the apostrophe to show belonging as follow:

Use apostrophe s to the end of s singular noun that doesn’t end with s

e.g.: Kang Rohman’s blog.

Use apostrophe s to the end of a singular noun, even if it ends with s:

e.g.: Haris’s book

Use apostrophe s to the end of a plural noun that doesn’t end with s

e.g.: children’s bag


Use apostrophe only to the end of a plural noun that ends with s

e.g. my brothers’ books

Now look at the examples below and find the meaning:
My friend’s sister’s dogs (it means I have one friend, my friend has one sister and my friend’s sister has some dogs)

Are phrases below possessive apostrophe?
Haris’s sad.
He’s so cruel.
