Is this something one might say to one's tailoring teacher, or is this a way one might say "I don't know where the scissors are"?

I wrote "I do not know the scissors' position" and it told me I had a typo, that I shouldn't have an apostrophe. The apostrophe is necessary for the sentence to be correct.

In cases like these, I've learned to phrase the English similarly to how the Vietnamese is phrased, even if it's odd. "I do not know the position of the scissors."

The mouse hint gives for vị tri: position (for honoring purposes). I interpreted that as the position in a hiercharchy. But that does not apply to scissors.

i used the word location, assuming that's the same meaning?
