im currently writing an essay for my university coursework. in the essay, im discussing other peoples beliefs, and i was wondering about the use of a ' in the word "others"
basically, my sentence is
..."knowing others' beliefs helps us...."
but should i get rid of the ' and just put
"knowing others beliefs helps us..."
im talking about beliefs that belong to other people, so i thought a ' was necessary...
thanks thats a great help
