Incorrect spelling, explanation:
posible is incorrect, because Latin posse, which is the origin of this word, is written with double s. So is modern English possible – the spelling remained similar to the original form. Therefore possible is the correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: this form is the correct one as the word possible comes from Latin possibilis (posse – to be able to – with a suffix), which is also written with double consonant s. This spelling remained so
posible is an incorrect form and the correct one is possible.
