In singular possessive, is country “countries” or “country’s”?


The part in front of the apostrophe is always the subject, so you can easily figure it out.

So for singular possessive, take the singular,”country”, and add “ ’s ” “Belonging to one country”

For the plural possessive, take the plural, “countries” and add “ ‘s”. “Belonging to many countries.”

When that results in “s’s”, (countries’s) , the second s is dropped, hence, “countries’ “
