  • Where have you ever seen Ram'S?`Where have you ever seen Ram, for that matter? – RegDwigнt Oct 8 '13 at 17:01
  • Ram could also be a name or a nickname, apart from the animal, that is. – GreaseMonkey Oct 8 '13 at 19:42

Never a capitalized S after " ' ". But RAM is an acronym and the letters should be capitalized.

Write RAM's ; however it is unusual, please give a context. "RAM's hindrance is that they are volatile" is correct.

For instance, you write "the RAM-capacity is", "the RAM has xyz Kb, or xy Gb", rather than "the RAM's capacity is", however formally correct.

  • Ram isn't necessarily an acronym. A ram is a male sheep. – GreaseMonkey Oct 8 '13 at 16:51
