I'm working on this sheet of paper for homework where I'm given sentences and I have to identify what part of speech every word is. One sentence contains the phrase "company's success". I know success is a noun, but is "company's" a noun (posessive noun?) or is it an adjective since it modifies "success". Or is the whole phrase considered one noun? Also for the phrase "marketing strategies" is strategies a noun, and marketing is an adjective? Since marketing describes what type of strategies? Thanks in advance.

Okay, makes sense, thanks for your help. What about for marketing strategies? I have marketing as an adjective. Would that be correct?

Marketing is a verb in the present tense, not an adjective. Adjectives are a description of something i.e. beautiful, tasty.

I dont think thats true in the context. Marketing tells what kind of strategies, no one is doing the marketing.
