Q: Why is an apostrophe used in the sentence above?
Are you a friend of Nicola's?
There's already the preposition "of" meaning possession, but Idk why the name Nicola is with an apostrophe.

So, the full sentence would be "are you a friend of Nicola's friend?"
Q: I don't understand when I should use 's(apostrophe s).

Both "public perception" and "public's perception" are correct.
On the other hand, "mother's birthday" is correct but "mother birthday" is wrong.
Why?
A: “Public’s perception” is only right if you say “the public’s perception”. That apostrophe s is only used to show possession. So, since it is the birthday of the mother you have to say ‘mother’s birthday’. Public is both an adjective and a noun. You can say the perception of the public ‘the public’s perception’ or you can say the kind of perception that I am talking about is public ‘public perception’
Q: Sometimes I'm confused with apostrophe. For example, in the sentence "This guy's an amateur." I think it is wrong. "guy's" is possesive, not "guy is". Is it wrong?
A: Yes. This is correct. Apostrophes are mainly used to make possessive verbs. But they are also used to combine some words to make "contractions". For example: "isn't" means "is not" or "doesn't" means "does not".
Q: When or not to use apostrophes instead of "of"
A: Apostrophes are used when something is possessive. The transport does not own the means. "Means of transportation" is saying the different ways to transport yourself like car, bus, plane, or other things. If you said "transport's means" it isn't grammatically correct because you are saying that transport owns the means.
Q: Why is the apostrophe in words such as shouldn't, wouldn't, and isn't used after the n and not before it?
A: It's combining the words should and not like shouldnot, but the o is absent, so the apostrophe takes its place to show there's a piece missing in the word or something. lmao i had this explained to me ten years ago so I'm not 100% sure.
