Sounds like your keyboard has been changed to a different layout.You can manually insert a / mark - by looking for it in theCharacter Map - and use copy/paste to insert where you need it tobe.

You would never use a comma between the d and s in the word periods because it is the plural form of the word period. Now if you were showing a possession of someone then you would use the comma.

The absence of punctuation does not in itself cause a string of words to be defined as a fragment, nor does the presence of punctuation cause a string of words to be defined as a sentence.

No. Special subtypes of pronouns (called "possessive pronouns") are used to indicate possession. These pronouns (his, hers, theirs, its, mine, yours, whose, ours) do NOT use apostrophes. This is a frequent mistake for the word "it's". IT'S (with an apostrophe) is a contraction of "it is". The...

Yes. Depending upon sentence usage, "it's" is a contraction for the two words "it is" (as in "it's a problem") or "it has" (as in "it's been a long time since I've seen you"). "Its" without an apostrophe stands for the possessive form of the pronoun "it" and is used as an attributive adjective ...

A compound word is "a word composed of two or more words joined with a hyphen or written in solid form, as 'fly-by-night' or 'shoestring'." I guess it all depends on how the word is written; I've seen it written acceptably as "point-blank", "pointblank", AND "point blank"
