    • C.

      Students'

    Correct Answer
    meadows'
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "meadows'". In this question, we are asked to write the plural possessive form of the word "meadow". To form the plural possessive, we add an apostrophe after the "s" in "meadows". This indicates that something belongs to or is associated with multiple meadows.

  • 4. 

     Write the plural possessive form of child.

    Correct Answer
    children's
    Explanation
    The plural possessive form of "child" is "children's." This is because when a noun is plural and ends in "s," the possessive form is formed by adding an apostrophe after the "s." In this case, "children" is already plural, so we simply add an apostrophe after the "s" to indicate possession.

    Rate this question:

    Write the plural possessive form of pie.

    Correct Answer
    pies'
    Explanation
    The plural possessive form of "pie" is "pies" because when a noun is plural and ends with an "s," an apostrophe is added after the "s" to show possession. In this case, since "pie" becomes "pies'" in the plural form, the apostrophe is added after the "s" to indicate possession.

    Write the plural possessive form of bat.

    Correct Answer
