"लड़कियों के सेब।"
अनुवाद:The girls' apples.
The 'apostrophe' ( ' ) has two main uses in English:
To indicate that something belongs to someone. For ex - "Varun's book" shows that the book belongs to Varun. In Hindi this is "वरुण की किताब". Other examples are "the man's apples", "a boy's shirt", "Rohan's hand etc.
When a word is in the plural form and ends with 's', we put the apostrophe after the 's', like in the above sentence. The above sentence says "The girls' apples". The apostrophe after the 's' shows that 'girls' is in the plural form. Because if you write "The girl's apples" it would mean that the apples belong only to one girl. Examples for this kind of use are "the boys' shirts", "the dogs' food" etc. But if the plural doesn't end with 's', you don't need to use this rule. Ex - "the men's hats", "the women's dresses". Here even though "men" and "women" are plural, because they don't end in 's' you can follow the first rule.
- The other use of an apostrophe is to indicate the omission of letters, or in simple words some letters in a word are removed and are replaced by an apostrophe. "Contractions" are very common in English and I must have used them a few times already in this comment. :)
Here are a few contractions where an apostrophe replaces the omitted words:
- I'm - I am - मैं हूँ
- You're - You are - आप हैं
- Don't - Do not - न करना
- Can't - Can not - नहीं कर सकते
- We're - We are - हम हैं
Hope this helps. If you didn't understand, I can give you a simpler answer. :)
