Punctuation - Possessives
Which one is correct? She looked at the propertie's vast landscape. Or...She looked ate the properties vast landscape. Note the difference in the placement of the apostrophe in the word, "propertie's". Grammarly does not recognize possessive forms. What's up with that?
Actually, Grammarly does recognize many possessives, but not all. This is a function of the software's dictionary.
You problem lies elsewhere; both of your samples are wrong. Properties is the plural of property and is not a possessive. Properties' is the plural possessive. Proopertie's is nothing, a misspelling.
Because you use the definate article "the," you are talking about a single property -- the property -- and not multiple properties. So you must use the possessive of the singular -- property's.
She looked at the property's vast landscape.
I hope this helps.
