問有關代名詞及所有格的問題?

In the spring of 2016,I worked for A Corporation. It (or They) belongs (or belong) to a group of companies, B Corporation. Click here to see their (or B's) news......

上面我要問的是:說之前在"A公司"上班,而那家公司屬於"B大企業集團".我想這一句若主詞用代名詞應用it吧,但若用they可以嗎?畢竟公司代表一個群體. 後面述說:請點這邊看B集團的新聞. 這一句所有格用their可以嗎? 因前面已講到那就是a group of companies , 還是說為了怕大家混淆,所以所有格就用B's ? 是不是後續怕誤解所以所有格就使用A's , B's 而代名詞不用, 就用A , B 呢? 請解開我的疑惑,當然同樣的情形(描述一個團體),我們常會碰到,亦請多指點一些. 謝謝!

    公司是一個法人,所以通常是用單數來看待。你的句子可以改寫成下面這樣較合適:

    Corporation A, which I worked for in the spring of 2016, is affiliated with Corporation B. You can click here to see the latter's news.

    關係代名詞是用來建立關係子句與先行詞的關係如上句這裡的which。而名詞或代名詞所有格是用來建立它與後面名詞間的隸屬關係:後者屬於它。

    Showing possession is the possessive case;

    eg:-B's

    eg:-the Bs'the possessive pronoun, plural in number=possession of the property by B

    =the group Corp of B

    =B Corp's

    =their ownership in getting possession of A

    =is in possession of A

    =Click here to see their( or Bs') news........
