  Doubt 1

1) Tom Adams's car is black. / 2) Tom Adams' car is black.

1st is correct. AS his name is tom adams.
for example , a simple example
it is his car .
in short we write "it's his car"

if sentence is like "lisa magnus car is black"
then we can write lisa magnus' car is black.

So in simple words if last letter before the 's is also s then we use ____s'
otherwise we use ___'s.
hope u understand.
plz sm1 confirm. it created doubt in my mind too :P

the correct option is 2.
since 2 S have to come, one before an apostrophe and one after that, we put a single S and an apostrophe after that.
