    PS: I am sorry to discuss about TestMagic, which is not the scope of this forum. However I am looking forward to hearing the expert's answer to my question on apostrophe.

    There are various replies above which explain why the use of the apostrophe is incorrect in this example.

    Hi Tom Slocombe:

    Thanks for the comment. However I would like to know what others say about this, so I have started a new thread. Please give your reasons there, so the learners like me will be able to understand it better.

    Thanks,
    Quest

    You know that there are mistakes in the essay. So the apostrophe has to be another mistake. They claim that the essays are written by staff members as models for students, but they still contain mistakes.
