We use an apostrophe ‘s to say that something belongs to somebody. For example: dad’s car, Mike’s girlfriend. We put ‘s at the end of singular nouns, and ‘ without “s” if the noun is plural. If a noun has an irregular plural form (like men, children), then we add 's. Talking about things, we normally use the preposition “of”. For example, a bottle of water, a game of tennis.
