Can we use the possessive "'s" for "one"

-I am seeing a green guy and a blue one.

-The blue one's car is burning

Is it correct?

The same about pluraul:

-I am seeing green guys blue ones.

-The blue ones' car is burning

    Yes, if multiple blue men have joint ownership of a single car. (Or ownership in the loose sense of all of them being inside it or next to it at the time.) – Jason Bassford Apr 17 '19 at 14:16
