- Apostrophe-“s” vs “of ” 5 answers
It is a very simple word but I am quite confused when I write formal documents. I do not know exactly when to use the of rather than 's. For example:
The value of the mean or The mean's value.
The domains of statistics or The statistics' domains.
The example of data or data's example.
I have searched on Google. Both cases seem widely used on many websites, so I do not know which one is well received by native speakers. Are there guidelines for choosing one over the other?
