Denise, who is doing a newsletter, asks...
When you say ....using its guideline..... or .....prior to its expiration..... Do you use an apostrophe's guideline or's expiration?
Anne answers...
No. You use an apostrophe with the word "it" when you mean "It is." And you don't mean "it is" in those instances.
