Your Tutor

To say how soon something will happen the expression "in...'s time" is used. So, "It'll be done in a week's time (sing. poss.) or in two weeks' time (plu. poss.)." Only one out of 47 got it right? Jeez! What's happening to our language? Doesn't anyone out there know how to use it correctly anymore?

When a noun comes as an adjective, we use the singular form of that noun.
