    your是一個possessive determiner,後面需要放一個名詞。本身屬於形容詞性質,不能單獨當介系詞的受詞。

    yours是一個possessive pronoun。可以用來當介系詞of的受詞。

    所以本題只能寫成:Is she a relative of yours?

    英文裡沒有your's這種字。

    Is she a relative of yours? = Is she one of your relatives?

    worth這個形容詞可以有自己的受詞,但不能接不定詞。

    The building itself must be worth a fortune. (a fortune當worth的受詞)

    The book is definitely worth reading. (reading當worth的受詞)

    worth也可以當名詞。The United Nations has proved its worth over the years.

    worthy是形容詞:He had shown himself to be worthy of their respect.

    可以加在名詞前,a worthy person or thing

    2011-03-25 20:37:57 補充:

    worthwhile和worthy的用法的不同點在後面不能加of。

    I wanted to do my bit for a worthwhile charity.(當名詞的修飾語)

    We felt the meeting had been very worthwhile.(當主詞補語)

    It is worthwhile to recall a few important facts.

    如果單單只是要問your&yours我可以回答你

    your是指你的或你們的

    yours是代名詞 如:your computer 可以代為yours

    這是我理解的

    希望對你有幫助
