A noun is in the Possessive or Genitive Case when it is used to show ownership or possession.
It is usually created by adding an apostrophe (') and an -s ending to the noun.
If you want to express the possession in singular, add the apostrophe to the noun before the -s ('s)
(the boy's ball)
If you want to express the possession in plural, add the apostrophe to the noun after the -s (s').
(the boys' ball)
The possessive can be also expressed using the of-phrase, particularly when the possessor is not a person
(the leg of the table, the base of the statue).
