    1. I can never read Harrys writing because his os look like as.

    It's better to use few apostrophes, but in this case, the words "os" and "as" are confusing without them.

    > I can never read HARRY'S writing because his O'S (o's) look like A'S (a's).

    2. No one thought that AI and Janets business would do so well in its first three months of operation.

    Use one apostrophe because they both own the same business.

    > CHARLES'S older sister is encouraging him to major in computer science, but he isn't sure he wants to.

    4. Lois new car must be a lemon, because its engine is not running well, and its been in the shop three times in month.

    > LOIS'S new car must be a lemon because its engine is not running well, and IT'S been in the shop three times in ONE month.

    NOTES:

    Do not use a comma before "because"

    A word was omitted before "month"
