Pronoun Case


Rule 5: To use a possessive pronoun, use the possessive form of the pronoun-don't add an apostrophe to the pronoun.

Examples:

• The book had its cover torn off.
• Bob lost his report.
• Mary quit her job.

Important Note: A very common writing mistake is confusing its and it's. It's is never a possessive. It's (with the apostrophe) always means the contraction form of it is.
