    Apostrophe/plural
    Message from mohammad51 posted on 12-03-2021 at 12:49:51 (D | E | F)
    Hello
    Please if any teacher could help?
    Thank you in advance

    How would you describe :
    1. Two men named Smith. My answer: Two Smiths
    2. The two daughters of Mr. Jones. My answer: Mr. Jones's (two) daughters
    3. The wives of the two men in (1) ?
    For 3 I see it is somehow difficult

    I suggest
    Two Smiths' wives.
    OR : Messrs Smiths' wives ?
    I am not sure from my answers for 3
