Hi,

Normally, the article "the" in situations where it is shown possessiveness, the modifies the word or phrase being possessed like this (Is that true??):

based on the report of the IMF'S Independent Evaluation (Here, the modifies the abbreviations IMF, I think.)

But, the following case seems to differ, why is that?

the America's position on this issue (Here, the seems to modify the word "position". Is this an exception to the general ways in regard to the issue I brought out?)

I can't think of a context where 'the America's position on this issue' would be correct. Where did you find this? Can you post the rest of the sentence please?

Or was it 'the Americas position on this issue' without the apostrophe? That would be correct if it were referring collectively to all the different parts of the American continent (north America, south America, central America). Or it could have been 'the American's position (the person was American).

Anyway in both of my further examples, 'the' modifies Americas or American's, not position.

Your underlined part is okay - but while "America" is commonly used as a substitute for "The United States," it's not "the America."

Hi, Nona.

I made the phrase 'the America's position on this issue' up and I wrote 'America's' because I and, some others too I think, consider the word 'America' as practically same as the phrase 'the United States'. Hope that my wording of this makes sense

Do you think the phrasing of the underlined part needs improving?
