The possessive adjective must be singular if the noun is singular and plural if the noun is plural. Su prima Sus primas                                                                                            While possessive adjectives refer to the owner, their form agrees in gender and number with the noun that comes after them. Nuestros abuelos Nuestras primas.

Nuestros abuelos son viejos y simpáticos.

14 Showing Possession In Spanish there are NO apostrophes.
You cannot say, for example, Jorge’s dog (using an apostrophe)

“The dog of Jorge” (only in Spanish) like this: El perro de Jorge Su perro

16 De + noun This concept of showing possession is using “de + noun.”
For example:

17 De + Noun Tengo el cuaderno de Felipe. Tengo SU cuaderno.
La hermana de María es amable. Su hermana es amable.

18 Su and sus can take the place of a phrase with de + person.
¿De dónde es la madre de Juan? Su madre es de Puebla.
