Correct and Incorrect Sentences

Which of the following sentences are incorrect?

(1) The Bible tells us to follow Jesus’ teachings. 

(2) Follow William Bates’s methods of good vision.

(3) You must do this for your own conscience’s sake.

(4) The Old Testament explains in detail Moses’ Ten Commandments.

(5) A wise dog scratches it’s own fleas.

(6) Hurry up! It’s getting late.

(7) She is Charles’s girlfriend.


(3) You must do this for your own conscience’s sake.

(5) A wise dog scratches it’s own fleas.


Always form the possessive of singular nouns and abbreviations by adding an apostrophe and an s. This rule applies even if the noun or abbreviation ends in s. The exceptions are the possessives of ancient proper names, such as Jesus and Moses, and such forms as for conscience’ sake, and for righteousness’ sake.

“It’s” means “it is”, while “its” is a possessive.
