Can you tell whose is whose?
Regarding this, whose or who's in a sentence?
Whose is the possessive form of the pronoun who and is defined as belonging to or associated with which person. When used in a sentence, it usually (but not always) appears before a noun. For example, Whose turn is it to move?
Beside above, who's birthday or whose? "Who's" is a contraction of "who is" or "who has". "Whose" is the possessive form of "who".
In this regard, how do you write whose is whose?
#2: Look at What Follows Remember, whose is possessive. That means that whose is normally followed by a noun. If the sentence has a noun immediately after the whose or who's, you should use whose. If there's no noun or an article, use who's.
Can whose be used for plural?
Since whose is referring to the plural directories, it must take a plural noun: What's so special about directories whose names begin with a dot? The above holds unless the directories collectively have one name, in which case it would be correct to use name in the singular.
