Can some one confirm whether we can use apostrophe for inanimate things in GMAT????

In some exams like CAT apostrophe is not used with inanimate things ???

OA - A


My Two Rs:

A) an annual Irish festival, is a fairly popular event: during the festival's week some 10,000 people visit
Read it as- An event during the festival's week.
Here event is modifying Festival .... ummm....or.... event is modifying week.
Now read- An event during the week of the festival.
More Clear in meaning.

And with Mary.... The mary is wearing is def wordy and should be avoided.
In short: Meaning > Grammar

Apart from this:
One thing I want to share regarding Possessive pronoun
- there was a question : Contemporaries of Cobain ..... (Correctly written)
and in one option -
contemporaries of Cobain's ....
was mentioned....which was incorrect because contemporaries of already showed 'possessiveness' to cobain.
