    1) They arrested the children of the ministers.
    2) They arrested the children of ministers.

    3) They arrested children of the ministers.

    in which
    b) some of the ministers' children were arrested but every minister had at least one of his children arrested
    in which
    c) the children who were arrested were children of ministers but not all the ministers' children were arrested
