Apostrophe(')  :-We use apostrophe to show the possession or ownership of a noun. If the noun is singular the apostrophe is used with s as ('s) and if the noun is plural the apostrophe is used as(') because plural noun ends with s/es. If plural noun doesn't end with s/es apostrophe is used as ('s). 

We use apostrophe to shorten the words by omitting a letter /some letters.

 

For example :-
