Mekong Posted June 22, 2022 Report Share Posted June 22, 2022 First look at the context, Plural or Possessive. The Plural of Lotus is Lotuses or Loti so not that For Possessive both s’ and s’s there is no hard and fast rule, but usual to chose on and stick to it, i.e. either all s’ or all s’s. it appears that you were taught English incorrectly. But don’t worry many were, including us Brits the inventors of the damn language. Another bullshit rule is “I before E except after C” So what about, Efficient, Science, Sufficient, Proficient and so on for after C words or Neither, Weird, Foreign, Leisure, Height, Protein for E before I after C These so called “Rules” are just lazy generalizations made up by teachers who don’t know the subject themselves.
