Calling on those who remember what they learned in English classes! Which sentence below (if any) is correct?
- (a) Will your brother John’s daughter be at the party?
- (b) Will your brother Johns’ daughter be at the party?
- (c) Will your brother Johns daughter be at the party?
I’ve looked online and the apostrophe is used to indicate the possessive . It doesn’t seem quite right to use the possessive (at least in the common meaning of possess) for a person as opposed to something John owns.
Sentence (c) seems wrong because it appears to make John plural.
