An apostrophe is used to indicate that letters
have been left out. This usually happens when two words are combined into
one. The resulting word is called a "contraction." For example, "it's"
is a contraction of "it is."
1. Fix the apostrophe problem in each sentence.
2. After each sentence, rewrite the phrases with apostrophes as phrases. For example, "He'll be here soon" would be "He will be."
3. Place parentheses ( ) around each prepositional phrase.
4. Underline every verb twice, its subject(s) once, and label any complements ("PA," "PN," "IO," or "DO").
