Directions:
1. Fix the apostrophe problem in each sentence.
2. After each sentence, rewrite the  phrases with apostrophes as phrases with prepositional phrases. For example, "my brother's dog" would be "the dog of my brother" or "the dog that belongs to my brother."
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").
