Common Mistakes on Punctuations: There, Their and They're

Improper use of punctuations can change the meaning of the sentence or phrase. That is why it is important to use the correct punctuations at the right place in a sentence. Here is one of the most common mistakes on Punctuations and Grammar:

They're VS There VS Their

They're is a contraction of they and are.
Example: I am glad they're nice.

There is used to refer to a place, either literal or figurative.
Example: There is a fairy living in the forest over there.

Their is the possessive for something that belowngs to a group of people.
Example: Yesterday, all my classmates had their teeth cleaned at the clinic.
