Hi Justin Good question. Of course you are right, but for the purposes of this assignment 's will only be a possessive, please. To go beyond that would entail part-of-speech tagging and linguistic analysis, which is very interesting, but WELL beyond the scope of this unit. Have a good weekend Cheers MichaelW PS Thanks for attaching your name.
