Incorrect spelling, explanation: making s double in this word is incorrect, because of the French origin posicion. Therefore
possition is an incorrect form. The correct spelling is with just one s, just like in the original: position.
Correct spelling, explanation: coming from Old French posicion, position is the correct spelling of the word. The sound and single s in the French version point to position as the right form. Thus
possition or any other spelling is incorrect.
