Determiner before posessive

Post by englishwonder » Mon Jan 29, 2018 4:20 pm

I need a help in tackling the 'determiner before possessive' problem:
-I need to choose a proper article in the following two sentences:
1. (...) girl's uncle is a doctor.
2. (...) girl's brothers are at school.
Is it possible to use indefinite articles in the abovementioned sentences?
Thanks in advance!
