    Wink each/kids

    Hello!

    I have two grammatical questions!:

    1-When do we use "each" and "each one", same question for "any".

    For instance:

    Each/Each one of you must tell me the truth. If any/ any one of you tries to lie to me, they'll have problems.


    2-I regulary see "kids games", "kids activities". This structure looks strange to me. Indeed, "kid" in this case is like an adjective, so it shouldn't be plural, according to what I know.

    Is the real structure "Kids' games", and people simply forget the '?

    Cheers
    W

    Re: each/kids

    Use one to emphasise that they will have to make a true statement individually.

    Change '...they'll have problems' to '...you'll have problems.'

    Is the real structure "Kids' games", and people simply forget the '? Yes.
