Scroll down for answers and explanations.

1. Woolworths is one of the biggest employers in Tasmania.

(Companies are singular, even if they sound plural by ending in s. Employers is a plural noun so it should not have an apostrophe.)

2. It’s Rosie here, ready to help with your enquiries at our new store.

(We need the apostrophe in “It’s” as the short form of “It is”.)

3. The Chair will give the CEO and me a lift to the meeting.

(If you’re confused by this, remove the CEO and leave yourself. I think you’ll agree you can’t say, ‘The Chair will give I a lift to the meeting.’
