Precaution while using LPG

Safety Tips

LPG is being used in almost all sectors, domestic commercial and industrial. It has proved itself to be one of the most costeffective, less hazardous, environmentfriendly fuels. Still due to some of its properties, LPG uses have been marred by accidents, which cannot be termed as sporadic incidents. LPG has to be used in accordance with certain safety measures. Incorrect use of LPG can result in explosions, fires, loss of property and most importantly, loss of lives. Do not neglect issues like leaking gas cylinders or tubes, damaged regulators, incorrect method of storage of LPG cylinders, etc.

The possessive case of a noun or pronoun indicates ownership or possession.

Pronouns such as his, her, its, my, mine, your, yours, their, theirs, our, and

ours are all possessive case words.


Here are several rules for the possessive case.


A. Most singular nouns form their possessive by adding an apostrophe

and an s. (the baboon’s food; the girl’s sweater; Marx’s teachings; Burns’s

poetic lines; Dickens’s characters)


B. To form the possessive of a singular noun that ends with an s sound,

take one of two actions.


   1. If a name of two or more syllables ends in an eez sound, the possessive

is formed without an additional s. (Ulysses’ friends; Archimedes’

theories)


   2. Add an apostrophe and an s if the word would not be difficult to

pronounce. (dress’s cost; quartz’s essence)

C. Add only an apostrophe to form the possessive of a plural noun that

ends in s. (the boys’ gymnasium; the Murphys’ home)

D. If a plural noun does not end in s, add an apostrophe and an s. (the

men’s department; the mice’s hiding spots)


E. Use the possessive form for only the last name in compound nouns for

organizations, literary titles, businesses, and relatives. If owned separately,

use the possessive for both names.


Tom’s and Pete’s reputations (separate reputations)

Procter and Gamble’s sales (combined ownership)

mother-in-law’s magazines (one woman’s ownership)

mothers-in-law’s magazines (two or more women’s ownership)


F. For acronyms (words formed from the first letters of a series of words),

add an apostrophe and an s.
