Example Question #1 : Form And Use Possessives: Ccss.Ela Literacy.L.3.2.D

Select the answer choice that shows that the dog belongs to Melissa using a possessive noun. 

Possible Answers:

Spot is Melissas dog. 

Spot is Melissa dog. 

Spot's dog is Melissa. 

Spot is Melissa's dog. 

Correct answer:

Spot is Melissa's dog. 

Explanation:

A possessive noun shows who or what owns somethings. 

In this example, Melissa owns the dog, so "Melissa" is the possessive noun. To make a noun possessive, we add an apostrophe and an s ('s). 

"Spot is Melissa's dog." is the correct answer.
