    Question 's or s'

    Hi
    Thanks in advance.
    Can someone tell me where to put the apostrophe in the sentences on the word students before 's or s'

    and does it matter if in US or British.
    This lesson is to tell students about myself and.........

    This lesson aims to develop students ability to......

    The lesson give students a number of business......

    I found two of my students and they translated for me.

    I assume it will be the same for all but I included them, the first three talk about a lot of students but the fourth only talks about two.
    Again thanks for the help.
    Gary

    This lesson is to tell students about myself and......... no possessive = no apostrophe

    This lesson aims to develop students ability to...... possessive - plural students = ...s'

    Simple plurals do not take an apostrophe.
