SOURCE: what is a plural noun

Consider a noun such as BOY. When there is only one (a single one) you can say something about the boy, or about a boy.
So you use the form BOY when there is a single one. This form is called the singular form of the noun BOY.
However if you are speaking about or pointing at a group ( of people ) in which everyone is a boy you use the modified form BOYS. This form is called the plural form of the noun BOY. The word plural means many.
The plural of a noun is usually made by adding s to the singular. It is pronounced S after a p, k, or f sound. Otherwise it is pronounced Z.
There are certain exceptions to this rule, the ones that come to my mind are: one child, three children; the man, 10 men; one woman, many women; a single knife, 12 knives; a potato, several potatoes; the top shelf, all the shelves.
Note: When you look for the meaning of a noun in a dictionary, you look for the singular form, although the plural is indicated in full if it is irregular (does not follow the rule).

SOURCE: what is a possessive noun

To express possession (ownership) in English one appends an apostrophe (') followed by s
The nose of the moose can be expressed as the moose's nose.
The rule is straightforward. When the noun to which the ownership refers to is the plural, the rule can be applied as stated above append ('s). However if the mark of the plural is s (regular plural) some people want to use the rule above, some others say that the last s should not be written.
Eaample: The hind legs of the wolves can be expressed as the wolves's hind legs or the wolves' hind legs. In the first expression you have wolves's while in the second you have wolves'.
Both rules are correct, but nowadays the tendency is to use the second form. It is a matter of usage.
If you are a student follow what your teacher says. When you write your own books, choose the one you want, but if your editor insists on using the other one, you have a problem.

Is this sentence right? Hams' trip made him famous.


In possessives, the placement of the apostrophe depends on whether the noun that shows possession is singular or plural. Generally, if the noun is singular, the apostrophe goes before the s. The witch's broom. If the noun is plural, the apostrophe goes after the s: The witches' brooms. However, if the word is pluralized without an s, the apostrophe comes before the s: He entered the men's room with an armload of children's clothing. If you create a possessive with a phrase like of the witches, you will use no apostrophe: the brooms of the witches.

What is a possessive noun


It is a common noun used in a possessive sense, eg "the boat's deck". As such it often involves adding an apostrophe-s to the noun. Where the noun already ends in an s, just the apostrophe may be added eg "the cars' exhaust fumes" for more than one car. The noun may have some other plural form, and we go back to the basic rule eg "the mice's cages".

What are possessive nouns


Possessive Form of a noun.
To express possession one appends an apostrophe followed by s ('s). That is the possessive form of the noun.
The paw of the tiger : the tiger's paw. Tiger's is the possessive form of the noun tiger.
When the noun is a plural ending in s, the possessive form could be ...s's or ...s'. Both forms are correct. If you are a student and your teacher insists on using one form rather than the other, do as you are expected. Once you start writing your own books, use the form that pleases you. It is just a matter of usage, and usage is changing all the time.

What is a possessive noun


There is no such thing as a possessive noun.
The real question should be : What is the possessive form of a noun? How do you show possession (ownership) relating to some noun?
To express possession (ownership) in English one appends an apostrophe (') followed by s. To append is to put at the end.
The nose of the moose can be expressed as the moose's nose.
The rule is straightforward. When the noun to which the ownership refers is in the plural, the rule can be applied as stated above append ('s). However if the mark of the plural is s (regular plural) some people want to use the rule above, some others say that the last s should not be appended..
Example: The hind legs of the wolves can be expressed as the wolves's hind legs or the wolves' hind legs. In the first expression you have wolves's while in the second you have wolves'.
Both rules are correct, but nowadays the tendency is to use the second form. It is a matter of usage.
