#1 Form the possessive singular of nouns by adding 's

1) Follow the rule whatever the consonant.
Greeves's dog
Louis's coat
Exceptions - Ancient proper names (Ex: Jesus, Moses) and words such as conscience

2) Pronominal possessives such as hers, yours, its, theirs and ours are exceptions as well. However indefinite pronouns use apostrophe.
One's game
No one else's bag

3) It's vs Its - It's is a contraction, meaning "it is". Its is a possessive.

PS: Starting today I will be blogging a series of grammar lessons from 'The Elements of Style". The aim is to improve my writing/grammar skills.
