"I was watching my second-grade brother do his homework, and I noticed this apostrophe fail."Nice work, Katie!
Where does this textbook go wrong? Although the name James ends in "s," it is not plural. The apostrophe after the "s" indicates that there are multiple Jameses.
- To indicate possession for a singular noun, add apostrophe + s. Yes, even if the singular noun ends in "s."
Correction: James's stomach growled really loudly in class today!
