As well as showing omission, apostrophes are also used to show possession: it shows who owns what. This use of the apostrophe is not as straightforward as showing omission and can cause a lot of headaches.
If you don't get full marks when you first play this quiz - don't worry! Many people, even when they are older, struggle with apostrophes, especially when it comes to showing possession. But it really needn't be hard. As long as you know the rules (and the exceptions to the rules, as there always are in English), you will do well. Keep on playing the quiz until you know the correct answers - then you'll be more confident in your writing skills.
Do this elementary school quiz and hopefully your headache will vanish!
