typing Which is correct?
You can download a free trial version of the software from the ________ website.
a. Tucows
b. Tucows’

Answer: a

Explanation: An apostrophe indicates possession. You’d only use one, in this sentence, if the word the was missing. In that case, we’d be referring to the website belonging to Speedy Systems. With the word the in place, we’re referring to the name of the website.
